The UNLV School of Dental Medicine Research Committee is composed of faculty from the dental school and research collaborators from several school and colleges at UNLV. The Research Committee invites students and faculty to participate in research in basic sciences, clinical sciences, and behavioral sciences.

The Research Committee works with the Office of Research to mentor new and ongoing research efforts by faculty and students at the school. The committee also serves as a peer review and research facilitator for biomedical research at UNLV.
