The MOST Program prepares students and postdoctoral fellows to shape the future of oral health research and clinical care. MOST fellows work with world-class faculty, use cutting-edge technology and explore new directions from the bench to the bedside.

The MOST Program is located on UIC's West Campus, at the heart of a major medical research center and just minutes from downtown Chicago. Our location gives us easy access to a diverse range of cutting-edge research, a diverse patient population and, when we're not working, everything that Chicago has to offer: miles of open lakefront, great culture, dining and sports.


Predental Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Predental Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for predental undergraduate students who are doing research to present their projects as posters to other predental and dental students. The symposium is run by members of UIC College of Dentistry's Student Research Group and it provides a friendly forum for learning more about research and meeting current dental students and their predental peers at other institutions. The symposium is held at the College of Dentistry and features a faculty keynote speaker.

The next symposium is scheduled for Saturday, April 5, 2014. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the or We hope to see you there!


All predental students currently enrolled as undergraduates are eligible to present their research. Students whose research is outside the oral health field are welcome to present.
