Find a Mentor

Erica Recker, Dr. Kim Brogden and Erica's mentor Dr. Satheesh Elangovan

Erica Recker (as a D1) with her mentors, Dr. Kim Brogden and Dr. Satheesh Elangovan, at the Iowa AADR Local Research Day on February 11, 2014.

 

Dental students who are interested in research should consider two questions before scheduling an appointment with a possible mentor: What type of research interests you?  Which faculty member might be an appropriate mentor for you?  The following faculty members are either currently serving as mentors or have agreed to list their names as possible mentors.  Students interested in research should contact the mentor directly.  If a faculty mentor is unable to take new students, it may be necessary to discuss alternate possibilities with other faculty members who are working in related areas.  Possible mentors are not limited to the following list; any University faculty member who is involved in research may serve as a mentor for a dental student's research project.

Faculty who would like to have their names added to this list or who would like to update their listing should contact Lynn Schaul by phone at (319) 335-7404 or e-mail at lynn-schaul@uiowa.edu.
