The John Greene Society (JGS) is the primary student-run dental research organization at the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry.

 

We represent the local chapter of the National Student Research Group (NSRG), a subset of the American Association of Dental Research. An independent registered campus organization (RCO), we receive support from and send representation to the Associated Dental Students (ADS) of UCSF. We also fall within the structural framework of NSRG, thus making our group a part of organized dentistry at a national level.
