The William J. Gies Award is given for the best paper published in the Journal of Dental Research during the preceding year. Nominations are made by individuals, by the Gies Award Committee, and by the Editor of the JDR. Most IADR/AADR awards are restricted to certain disciplines of research, but the JDR Gies Award is one of the few open to anyone who publishes in the Journal of Dental Research.


The Gies Award consists of a $1,000 monetary prize and a plaque which will be presented at either the Opening Ceremonies of the IADR/AADR/CADR General Session & Exhibition in Washington D.C., March 18-21, 2020.



IADR/AADR members are invited to send nominations for outstanding papers published in the JDR between July 2018 and June 2019.



Nominations and questions should be sent to Sheri S. Herren, Assistant Director of Strategic Programs at sherren@iadr.org.
