Research at the forefront of oral health

Anchored within a Carnegie level-1 public research university, we're the only research-oriented dental school in Illinois. Our investigators lead cutting-edge research to discover and translate new knowledge at the boundaries of science, transforming oral health care practice, social systems and related technologies for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.

UIC is a great place to conduct research. We’re in the heart of a major city, nearby several other colleges and universities, which offers me lots of opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration.
