School of Dentistry faculty actively contribute to the research mission of UMMC. The Office of Research is proud to recognize their accomplishments.
Amol V. Janorkar, PhD, a faculty member of the Biomedical Materials Science department, was a 2014 recipient of the Silver Medallion Award from the UMMC Excellence in Research program.
Awards are based on the total amount of extramural funding received by the investigator for his/her research. The Silver Medallion is awarded to investigators who have reached the $500,000 level.
Dissemination of the results of research is a primary obligation of the research scientist or clinician, with peer-reviewed journals the major vehicle. Accordingly, the Office of Research would like to recognize the excellent research being done in the School of Dentistry by focusing on faculty members' activity in publishing their findings.

The H-Index is one indicator of an investigator's research productivity. It attempts to evaluate not only the number of peer-reviewed articles published, but the impact of the findings by looking at the frequency with which an article is cited by other researchers. The H-indices reported here capture only publications after 1995, so may not fully reflect the impact of our faculty with longer research careers.
