Human and Clinical Research Center

WELCOME to Clinical Research at the School of Dentistry where we strive to serve the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, the profession, and the public in the translation of basic knowledge into new clinical therapies, while supporting the evaluation of existing therapies in order to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health.

Did you know that the Human and Clinical Research Center has a practiced-based referral network?
Practicing dentists can sign up to take part in this network. By joining this network you are helping further research and the dental profession. Once enrolled, you will receive quarterly emails that contain flyers for the various studies that are being conducted at the dental school. If you think you have any patients that may qualify you can simply hand them the flyer and they can contact the person on the flyer. It is important to note that any patients you refer for specific trials will be screened to see if they qualify, and, if they do, they will only receive treatment related to the study. We will work with your office to coordinate any other dental care they may need during the study period.
