Osteology Research Scholarships

The Osteology Foundation provides one-year scholarships for young investigators to develop their career in the field of oral tissue regeneration.

The goal of the Osteology Foundation is to offer scholars an outstanding environment and expertise in clinical and basic research. Additionally, the programme shall facilitate transnational and transdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and good practices, and lead to the development of new skills and competencies that the applicant transfers to their home institution and own research projects.

To accomplish this mission, the scholars work on a research project teaming up with their mentors in one of the Osteology Research Scholarship Centres.
