The CARE program is a 1-year research grant ($30,000.00 USD) to foster the development of first-time-in-career academic oral health or dental researchers. The goal of the program is to advance oral healthcare therapies in the realm of basic science, translational science, and clinical care.

  • Have a primary appointment as a full-time faculty at an accredited dental school in the USA or Canada
  • Be in the first five years of your initial academic appointment
  • Have additional sources of financial support for the proposed study
