Research Support

Research Meetings

There are two types of general research meetings held in codm on a regular basis to support faculty, staff, student and resident research. They serve as a peer support system to promote research collaboration and increase the quality of research. They are open for everyone to join. The names of these two research meetings are: (1) Research Advisory Committee (RAC) meetings, (2) Evidence-based Dental Research Council (EDRC) meetings. The RAC meetings are coordinated by Dr. Hung’s administrative assistant and the EDRC meetings are coordinated by the NSRG.

We use the RAC meetings to give each other updates on our research projects, inform each other on internal and external research activities and opportunities, mentor faculty and students, and help each other troubleshoot issues arise in research. The RAC meetings are facilitated by faculty. They are informal research meetings. Faculty facilitators do not need to prepare PowerPoint or lectures. Everyone just comes to the RAC meetings with ideas, news and questions for the group, and the designated faculty facilitators can facilitate the discussion. Faculty and/or students are always welcome to bring their ongoing research projects or project ideas to the RAC meetings to present to the group and seek feedback. A dedicated time slot will need to be reserved with Dr. Hung’s administrative assistant for any project presentation that requires the entire meeting period. If anyone has any special request for getting help on their research project (such as how to mentor students, how to do statistical analysis on a specific set of data, how to write or edit a certain part of their manuscript or grant application), they should send an email to Dr. Hung’s administrative assistant in advance of the meeting, so that a slot of time during the RAC meeting(s) can be blocked out in helping them with their project exclusively. During the academic year, RAC meetings normally hold twice per month. Meetings during summer and winter breaks can be scheduled upon request. Please click here for RAC meeting schedules.

The EDRC meetings are organized by the NSRG officers. These meetings can be formal or informal. They normally involve having speakers to give lectures or seminars on a certain research area or to present their research studies to the group, or having experts to teach a certain aspect of research methodologies or to lead group discussion in published studies, as well as giving students opportunities to present their research studies, discuss journal articles, practice and receive feedback on their upcoming conference presentation. During the academic year, EDRC meetings normally hold twice per month. No meetings are held during summer or winter break. Please click here for EDRC meeting schedules.

Application procedure for travel funding:

Applications for travel funding are invited from colleagues at the Roseman University College of Dental Medicine whose research project has been accepted for presentation at a professional conference meeting. This funding is contingent upon the applicant presenting at the meeting.

Applications can be submitted online to the Office of the Associate Dean for Research at least 6 weeks prior to travel dates. Requests are considered up to a maximum of $1,500 for domestic travel, and up to $2,000 for international travel. One award only will be made to any applicant during an academic year.

Travel funding can reimburse: airfare/car mileage, ground transportation fare, lodging and conference registration fee.

Society membership may be reimbursed on a case by case basis, only if this amount decreases the conference registration fee by more than the cost of the society membership fee.

Travel funding does not reimburse: meals, per diem, poster preparation fee, passport fee, training program, mini course, sightseeing and others.

The travel funding application must include the following items:

1. A copy of the abstract submitted to the meeting
2. A copy of the acceptance email showing the applicant has been accepted to present at the conference meeting
3. A statement explaining that the applicant has met or will meet the eligibility criteria of conference travel award prior to the travel dates. Each of the criteria needs to be addressed. Additionally, the applicant needs to state what value does this conference meeting contribute to his/her professional development and what does this conference travel contribute to codm research’s overall mission and goals.
4. A travel estimates for eligible expenses

Any applications received that do not contain all of the items will not be processed. Funds awarded may only be used to pay for expenses directly related to the applicant’s travel and registration. The Office of the Associate Dean for Research has the right to rescind the award if the applicant cancels, does not attend, or fails to meet the eligibility criteria.

All approved travel expenses are reimbursed after the travel has been completed. No travel expenses will be reimbursed if not approved by Dr. Man Hung prior to travel.

Research Lab items and supplies ordering procedure:

  1. Faculty/residents/students requesting items to be ordered will obtain an electronic order form from McKenzie Anderson, ( Click here to see an example form) and then fill out the form in its entirety.
  2. Put order form together – Please use the required research electronic ordering form to complete all orders. Please use one form per vendor (for tracking and budgeting purposes). You need to provide a detailed description of your study including the purpose of your study and the reasons for the need of the lab items or supplies. Everything must be completed and filled out (except the signature field) before submitting to McKenzie Anderson. If you would like to receive a text with any order updates, go ahead and included your cell phone number on the order form.
  3. Once the form has been submitting to McKenzie Anderson, and McKenzie doesn’t have any further questions, McKenzie will send the form to Dr. Man Hung for an electronic approval.
  4. After Dr. Hung has signed the form and approved, the order will be placed by McKenzie Anderson. *Note that an order form needs to be filled out completely for each order regardless it is for the same or different project. The ordering and approval process may take one to two weeks. Please do not order in the last minute. There is no rush order. For further information, please contact McKenzie Anderson*
  5. Whoever is requesting the order will be the one receiving any confirmations/order updates via their Roseman email. If you want someone else or any additional people to receive those confirmations/updates, please include their names on the order form.
  6. When the order arrives, Stephen/Roy will send out an email to all parties involved with research. It is preferred that if those requesting the order were there to receive their materials properly, and this will also help eliminate anything sitting in Shipping/Receiving for long period of time, possibly ruining any material.
    a. If you are able to come and collect the order, please respond to the email thread so we know someone is on their way!
    b. If you are unable to come and collect the order, please respond to the email thread so someone else knows it will need to be picked up!
    c. Anyone who has access to the lab is authorized to come and pick up the order; however, Stephen will have a sheet for you to sign once the package has been picked up. This will transfer all responsibility onto the person picking up the package.
    d. Whoever picks up the package will need to put it in the appropriate required temperature/lab. There will be a packing slip in or on the box, and once that has been retrieved, you will need to send/give a copy of that packing slip to McKenzie Anderson for accounting purposes!

Note that all CODM faculty/staff/residents/students need to have the two required CODM research professional development courses (Citi Biomedical Sciences and Citi Good Clinical Practice (FDA focus)) and the Roseman’s lab safety training completed before items can be approved for ordering.
