    Grant Development and Preparation

    ALL grants, whether service, research, public or private, must be routed through the SOD Office of Research. Whether you are unfamiliar with this process or have participated in it many times, it can be difficult to navigate.  In order to help you through this process, the SOD Office of Research has developed a Grant Submission Process Flow Chart to outline the grant submission process.

    Intramural Research Support Programs

    School of Dentistry Intramural Research Grants 

    The goal of the intramural research support program is to enhance research activities in the School of Dentistry. Highest priority is given to: 1) providing support for new investigators who are endeavoring to initiate and develop their research programs; and 2) supporting pilot studies with a clear potential for expansion into larger projects that can compete for extramural funding. Priority will be given to those research projects which involve School of Dentistry students.  

    Eligibility: Participation as co-investigator in an intramurally funded project is not restricted. The following eligibility guidelines refer to the principal investigator (PI), defined as the primary author of the proposal and the person assuming responsibility for completion of the project. 

    1. Full-time faculty members of the University Of Mississippi School Of Dentistry are eligible. 
    2. Pre-doctoral students and residents of the School of Dentistry are eligible, with the stipulation that such individuals must (a) be in good academic standing and have at least average academic performance; (b) demonstrate a primary role in development of the research project and proposal; and (c) be sponsored by a faculty mentor.
