“It feels really great to be recognized for my hard work. This makes me want to strive even harder. Receiving this award makes me think that, once I start my career, I also want to give back to help students succeed.”
Ahmed Alkholeidi, DDS '16, who received a Gaylord Scholarship
Graduate students, post-graduate residents and fellows conduct research across a number of disciplines, including cancer biology, neuroscience, anatomy and microbiology. Their work forms the foundation of advanced degree programs. Students in PhD programs, the DDS program, master’s degree programs and the DDS/PhD program work closely with faculty members in state-of-the-art laboratories. Their research is published in prestigious journals and they frequently present at national meetings. The Student Research Group creates a community for student researchers and organizes a variety of professional development programs.
