Can your salivary research take you to Cape Town?
The Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme (WOHP) is partnering with the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) for a fifth consecutive year to invite dental students, professionals and academics in the UK and Ireland to apply for the 2014 IADR Wrigley Salivary Research Award.
The WOHP is dedicated to supporting the dental profession in its mission to improve patient’s oral health, and through sponsoring this global award, it hopes that more students, professionals and academics with fantastic research behind them are able to benefit from both the financial reward, and global platform offered to successful candidates through this process.
To enter, all you need to do is submit a 300 word abstract for your existing salivary research.
Up to three prizes will be awarded to winning abstracts:
• One Clinical Salivary Research Award for dental scientists ($1,500)
• One Clinical Salivary Research Award for dental students ($1,500)
• One Basic Salivary Research Award for a dental or non-dental student ($2,000)
These awards are intended to recognize excellent research, and assist with travel costs to attend the 92nd General Session and Exhibition of the IADR in Cape Town.
Who is eligible?
• Dental and non-dental students (undergraduate and graduate), as well as dentists involved in research and other dental scientists are eligible to submit research extracts.
• Applicants must be over 18 years of age and be a member of IADR. Applicants do not have to be members of the IADR Salivary Research Group (SRG).
• Those who submit their abstracts will already have their research completed and just need to go through the formal award application process.
