Gaithersburg, Md.
— The ADA Foundation Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center is seeking young investigators for its 2015 Summer Scholars Fellowship Program.

The application deadline is Feb. 13.

Since its inception in 1940, the Summer Scholars program has been a way for students to apply classroom and lab experience to real world scenarios. The program has given talented students, both undergraduates and dental school students, the chance to participate in basic research at the VRC as well as gain hands-on experience in the clinical theater. Students work side-by-side with mentors while becoming part of the research process.

The ADA Foundation operates the Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center laboratory facility on the grounds of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal government research campus. Its origins date back to 1928. The ADA initially operated the laboratory facility, formerly known as the Paffenbarger Research Center, and later jointly operated it with the ADA Foundation. The lab conducts unique research in cutting-edge fields of biomaterial and tissue engineering technologies.
