Election 2010: Republicans Gain Control of House; Democrats Hold Senate
Voters will be sending at least 60 new Republicans to the House of Representatives in January, including Congressman-elect Paul Gosar, a Flagstaff dentist who will now be representing Arizona’s First District. With the largest gain by a single party in the House since 1938, the 112th Congress will begin with the Republicans holding at least 240 seats and the Democrats holding 188. Seven elections are still tallying results. The total number of votes needed to pass legislation in the House is 218, meaning the Republicans will have a comfortable margin to move forward with their agenda.

Two-year Study of Dental Therapists Completed
Dental therapists with two years of intensive training provide safe, competent, appropriate dental care, according to an independent evaluation of a program in Alaska designed to expand access to dental care. The two-year intensive evaluation is the first independent evaluation of its scale to assess care provided by dental therapists practicing in the United States.

NIH Funding Opportunity: NIH Early Independence Award Program

The NIH Common Fund has announced the highly selective NIH Director’s Early Independence Award Program to provide a mechanism for exceptional, early career scientists who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to omit traditional post-doctoral training and move into independent academic positions at U.S. institutions directly upon completion of their graduate degrees (Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent). The NIH expects to issue 10 awards through this program in fall 2011.
