Effie Ioannidou to Join the JDR Clinical & Translational Research as an Associate Editor

Alexandria, Va., USA – The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) are pleased to announce that Effie Ioannidou has been selected to become an associate editor of the IADR/AADR publication JDR Clinical & Translational Research. She will begin her term in January 2017.

Having launched this year, JDR Clinical & Translational Research is designed for IADR members and other oral health research leaders to publish their research and effectively translate their findings to those who need the information to deliver evidence-based prevention and care. This peer-reviewed journal is dedicated to publishing original dental, oral and craniofacial research at the interface between discovery science and clinical application. In addition to JDR Clinical & Translational Research, IADR/AADR jointly own and publish through SAGE Publishing Journal of Dental Research.

Ioannidou is associate professor, oral health and diagnostic sciences, at the School of Dental Medicine, University of Connecticut Health, Farmington, USA, where she also serves as the director of the Dental Clinical Research Center. She earned her Master of Dental Science at the University of Connecticut, Farmington, USA; and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.  Ioannidou completed a residency in periodontology at the University of Connecticut Health. Her postdoctoral training includes earning a certificate in clinical research methods, University of Washington, Seattle, USA; and completing a fellowship at the Academy of Academic Leadership.

Having studied the association between chronic periodontitis and chronic kidney disease, Ioannidou’s multidisciplinary research approach, which involves periodontology, nephrology, microbiology, epidemiology, nutrition and behavioral sciences, investigates the interactions between the chronic periodontitis and chronic kidney disease. Her current funded research project explores the contribution of kidney disease to the oral environment as well as the periodontal treatment response in individuals in different stages of chronic kidney disease and/or end stage kidney disease. In parallel, Ioannidou studies gender issues in academe as they relate to pay gap, leadership opportunities, scholarly activities, retention and recruitment.

As an active IADR/AADR member, she has served on several committees, including the IADR Fellowships Committee, AADR Edward H. Hatton Awards Committee, AADR Annual Session Committee, and IADR/AADR William J. Gies Award Committee, and the Taskforce in Diversity and Inclusion. Her term on the IADR/AADR Publications Committee will begin January 2017. Additionally, Ioannidou was the 2008 recipient of the AADR Neal W. Chilton Fellowship in Clinical Research.

“I am honored to welcome Dr. Effie Ioannidou to the JDR Clinical & Translational Research team,” said JDR Clinical & Translational Research Editor Jocelyne Feine. “I am confident that her extensive knowledge and expertise in oral health research will contribute to the growth of the publication, and I look forward to working with her.”
