This award recognizes excellence in nutrition research by pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students. Abstracts should be submitted to the Nutrition Group in response to the regular call for abstracts for the IADR General Session. A subcommittee will review abstracts with a student identified as the presenter on the abstract form. Abstracts will be judged based on originality, scientific rigor, and potential impact. Applicants may be IADR members or non-members, but, consistent with IADR conditions, must agree to present their research findings in person at the IADR General Session & Exhibition in London, England, July 25-28, 2018. If no abstract is deemed worthy of an award then no award will be given.
The applicant must be the first author and presenter of a paper accepted for presentation by the Nutrition Group. The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize of $500. In order to qualify for this award you must currently be a full-time student in a DDS, DMD, MS, Ph.D or other program at the time of abstract submission. To apply for the Nutrition Group Award, please indicate your interest in the award when you submit your abstract, from the list of Competitions, by February 2, 2018.
