IADR GC Centennial Research Award

In recognition of the GC Corporation Centennial in 2021, the IADR is pleased to offer the IADR GC Centennial Research Awards targeted at new investigators, within 10 years of their terminal degree, presenting research germane to maintaining oral health in ageing populations.

Applications will be accepted from new investigators for a research award to be presented at the IADR General Session & Exhibition in research fields related to preventive dentistry, regenerative dentistry, dental material research, geriatric dentistry, digital dentistry, and diagnostics.

In principle, at least one awardee will be selected for each research field. In exceptional cases, when there are no suitable applications in these fields, the award will be given to an applicant in another research field. IADR and GC Corporation reserve the right to make no Award if there are no eligible candidates.
The proposed awards are to be supported by a generous donation from GC Corporation.
