The Lion Dental Research Award is intended to support improvements in oral health sciences through the stimulation of junior researchers by recognition of outstanding and innovative research in basic dental science for the improvement of public dental health; and recognition of applied research achievements for improvement and development of oral care products for the prevention or oral diseases. The IADR is inviting applications from young investigators for an award from submitted abstracts. These Awards are made possible by a generous donation from the Lion Corporation, Tokyo, Japan.
