Research grants for dental students

UCL Eastman PhD students Shari Daniels and Fiona Ryan have both been awarded prestigious research grants by the European Orthodontic Society (EOS) to aid in their impressive research in the field.

Fiona is currently undertaking the final year of her PhD and she and her supervisor Professor Susan Cunningham have been awarded £16,320 to fund a national research project to investigate certain psychological characteristics in the general UK population.

In addition to this, Fiona has received a £10,000 research grant from the Royal College of Surgeons of England for her work on patient involvement in orthognathic treatment. Professors Susan Cunningham and Nigel Hunt supervise her in this endeavour.

Shari Daniels, along with supervisors Professor Nigel Hunt and Dr Rishma Shah, has been awarded £20,000 to support her research into the relationship between the muscles of mastication, mandibular growth and orthodontic therapies.

The UCL Eastman Dental Institute would like to congratulate both Shari and Fiona on their outstanding achievement and wish them every success with their research.
