The Research Advisory Committee (RAC) advises the administration on matters of policy pertaining to research, both internal and external, and provides the School of Dentistry and the Institute of Oral Health Research faculty input concerning policies and procedures that govern administration of funded research. The committee also serves as a forum to discuss research-related issues at The University of Alabama at Birmingham's School of Dentistry. The committee is a direct two-way communication channel that faculty and administration can use to convey issues and receive information about research-related concerns. Facilitating communication, engaging members of the research community, and addressing policies that effect research on campus are key issues for this committee.
