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.
