The NSRG is a Scientific Group of the AADR composed of a network of self-governing local Student Research Group (SRG) chapters at dental schools, and is led nationally by officers elected through a majority of votes from all members. All AADR student members are part of the AADR NSRG and are eligible to participate in their programs and activities.
