What's New

June JDR Features NIDCR Editorial
A guest editorial published in the June issue of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) celebrates the successes of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) in expanding the understanding of, and improving, oral health in the United States.  The editorial was timed to coincide with the exact 60th anniversary of the NIDCR, which was signed into law by President Harry Truman in June of 1948.  Authored by NIDCR Director Lawrence A. Tabak and Deputy Director A. Isabel Garcia, the editorial examines how oral health research and the traditional research community can be best positioned for the future.  The editorial, which is available to the public free of access controls, can be viewed at:  http://jdr.iadrjournals.org/cgi/content/full/87/6/509.
