  •    Innovation Center

    The Lincoln Memorial University College of Dental Medicine (LMU-CDM) has announced its partnership with The Center for Research and Education in Technology Inc. (CRET) to design, build and equip a digital technology Innovation Center at the LMU Tower in Knoxville.

    LMU-CDM was awarded an Innovation Center grant by CRET and will develop what will be the fourth such center in the country. LMU joins West Virginia University School of Dentistry, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Mississippi.
