NIDCR Funding to U.S. Dental Schools Diminished from 2005 to 2009

Adding to the national debate on the state of dental research in U.S. dental schools, an article released titled “Total NIH Support to U.S. Dental Schools, 2005-2009”, published in the International and American Associations for Dental Research’s Journal of Dental Research, authors J.A. Lipton and D.F. Kinane conclude that the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) has played a diminishing role in funding research at U.S. dental schools between 2005 and 2009.

House Appoints New Leaders, Targets Spending
The new majority in the House of Representatives released its Committee assignments, appointing Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) to head up the Labor-Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee. Rehberg will be charged with identifying discretionary health and education programs to slash, as the Republican majority in the House has insisted that they will seek to return to Fiscal Year 2008 spending levels for all discretionary spending programs.
Agencies Working Together to Maintain Benefits of Preventing Tooth Decay while Preventing Excessive Exposure
HHS and EPA Announce New Scientific Assessments and Actions on Fluoride

Proposed National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences
On Dec. 7, 2010, the Scientific Management Review Board (SMRB) recommended that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) realign its resources to establish a new Center devoted to advancing translational sciences. The action came in response to NIH Director Francis Collins’s charge to the SMRB to formulate and recommend a plan for achieving optimal organization for therapeutic development within NIH.
