Part of our mission is to ensure that research and development into orthodontics continues and is adequately funded. The ASO's Foundation for Research and Education gives financial support to universities, students and researchers as part of our mandate.

The ASO also alerts members to current research projects that may be of interest and assists in advertising projects and surveys looking for participants.
