International Association for Dental Research: IADR/GlaxoSmithKline Innovation in Oral Care Awards 2016

The Awards are intended to help investigators pursue innovative and novel research in oral care, above and beyond the bounds of traditional dental research.

Three competitive Awards, will be provided to recipients to advance oral care programs directed toward the development of innovative and novel compounds, biomaterials or devices that can be used ultimately at the public health level. Examples of areas of interest could include, but are not limited to:

  • inhibition or removal of biofilms etc. adhering to natural or artificial surfaces,
  • modification of those surfaces to inhibit biofilms and other deposits, stains and odours,
  • adhesives for removable prosthetic devices,
  • inhibition of tooth surface loss and gingival recession, and amelioration of their effects, and
  • counteracting the oral effects of dry mouth, systemic illness, hormonal disturbances or physiological ageing.

Funding & Duration

Competitive awards of up to US $50,000 each (approx AUD $66,000) will be provided to recipients to advance oral care programs directed toward the development of innovative and novel compounds, biomaterials or devices that can be used ultimately at the public health level.

Eligibility

The principal investigator listed in the application must be a current member of, or at the time of submission have made bona fide application to, IADR.

To fulfil the quest for innovation, proposals should be collaboratively sponsored by at least one researcher whose principal expertise is in an area of biotechnology other than a dental science.

The intent is to encourage collaboration with researchers from outside the dental institution; nevertheless, the most important criterion involves the innovative nature of the proposed research.

Applicants should possess advanced degrees and must hold an affiliation with an academic centre, not-for-profit institution, or for-profit entities such as biotechnology start-up companies.
