The award recognizes original research by new investigators in the multidisciplinary field of pre-prosthetic or prosthodontics-related regenerative science, including, but not limited to, tissue engineering, bone, tooth and soft-tissue regenerative sciences, graft materials research, maxillofacial reconstructive biology and physiology and implant biological research. The awards are co-sponsored by the IADR Prosthodontics Research Group and Japan Prosthodontic Society.

Eligibility:

The abstract must be presented within the Prosthodontics Research Group Session (either oral or poster presentation) of the IADR General Session, and the research presented must not have been published or considered for publication prior to the date of abstract submission.
