Meet the 2021-2022 Board of NSRG at Roseman University!

About NSRG

The National Student Research Group (NSRG) Roseman College of Dental Medicine Chapter strives to promote student involvement in dental research by focusing on the implementation of evidence-based dentistry within the clinic and the classroom. NSRG is the best place for students interested in research to find support and create connections with faculty members involved in research. Students can connect with like-minded scholars to discuss research ideas. The goal of NSRG is to promote the interdisciplinary advancement of research between Roseman’s dental, pharmacy, nursing, medicine, and now graduate studies programs. 

The NSRG Roseman CODM Chapter is affiliated with the American Association for Dental Research (AADR). At Roseman, the Office of the Associate Dean for Research (ADR) is responsible for the development and enhancement of the research infrastructure at the Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine. The ADR oversees all college units and programs that comprise research, including all faculty, staff, resident, and student research activities in Utah and Nevada.
