Clinical Research & Epidemiology Program

The Clinical Research & Epidemiology Program supports cross-sectional descriptive, case-control, prospective cohort and retrospective studies of dental, oral, and craniofacial diseases and disorders. Epidemiologic studies aimed at enhancing knowledge in the incidence, distribution, determinants and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to dental, oral, and craniofacial disease are also supported.
