Faculty UROP Day

UROP Day 2012 Research Presentations by Dental Students


This year’s UROP Day was held on 23 November 2012 at CRC Auditorium, chaired by Dr Joel Khoo. The purpose of Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) is to encourage and increase research interest in undergraduate students within the Faculty.

A total of 12 groups of the final year students presented their research findings, a culmination of their hard and dedicated team work over a one and a half year period. Guided by their supervisors the topics ranged from clinical and epidemiological surveys to bench top research in areas ranging from dental materials to stem cells. At the end of each presentation, students were grilled by questions on their research findings.

Overall, all agreed that a lot of effort and dedication were put in into their projects. We wish to congratulate all students and supervisors on the research work and the results from the studies. We hope these will spur the interest in the students to embark into research on a larger scale.
