Osteology Research Scholarship Centre - Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM)

The Department of Oral Medicine, Infection, and Immunity is a growing department heavily invested in cutting-edge research and the training of postgraduate students in the fields of oral and maxillofacial pathology, oral medicine, and periodontology.
The department has a long tradition of integrating students at the predoctoral and postdoctoral levels into research laboratories and successful mentoring relationships. Department training programs and research laboratories have been funded over the years by a wide array of government and private-sector grants and fellowships, including a National Institute of Health (NIH) training grant, which funds predoctoral and postdoctoral research projects. The department also sponsors special programs that provide Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) students the opportunity to learn from and interact with nationally known academics.

Fields of Research and Research Environment

HSDM Division of Periodontology develops clinical scholars for careers in clinical practice, education and research through excellence in education, patient care and scholarship emphasizing the art and science of periodontology, implantology and regenerative medicine.  The exploration of research at Harvard permits students to participate in a world-class environment that sets the standard for basic discoveries, clinical application, and research training in dental medicine.
