Edward C. Wach Fund
The Edward C. Wach Dental Research Fund provides financial support for clinical research. The six-member Wach Dental Research Fund committee, chaired by Dr. Guy Adami, reviews applications and makes awards. Faculty may consult Dr. Adami regarding the suitability of the project. The Office of Research Associate Director, Virginia Buglio, coordinates committee correspondence, awards, account set-up and close out.
Faculty of all clinical departments are requested to submit proposals. Submit electronic applications to Virginia Buglio, Office of Research, Room 402B, M/C 621.
All applications will be reviewed by the Committee based on scientific merit. The productivity resulting from previous awards (presentations, papers and efforts to obtain external funds) will be considered. Faculty may consult with Dr. Adami or any committee member regarding the suitability of a proposal.
Information for new faculty
Each year 25% of the Wach Fund is set aside for applications from new faculty. The application and review process are the same as for other faculty. The purpose of reserving funds for new faculty is to help them establish a research program and enable them to compete for external support. "New" is defined as a recent appointment in the College of Dentistry (not an increase in the percent time) and the application must be submitted within one year from the date of the appointment.
Information for Laboratory Volunteers
Staff and students who are supervising a laboratory volunteer or a student who is not enrolled in one of the College's degree programs must ensure that the individual is registered with the College of Dentistry for the duration of the volunteer period.
