Faculty UROP Day

18th UROP Day Research Presentations by Dental Students

2013 UROP Day was held on 22nd November at CRC Auditorium, chaired by Dr Fu Jia Hui.  The session began with an opening speech by Assoc Prof Cao Tong, Vice Dean of Research. Three faculty staff acted as judges namely, AP Keng Siong Beng, Dr Vinicius Rosa and Dr Jaya.

The purpose of Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) is to promote and develop research interest in every undergraduate student within the Faculty.  It also aims to allow students and faculty members to interact so as to foster ties in performing the research work and providing the opportunity to acquire skills for the intellectual process of inquiry.

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 presentations, 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.
