November 10, 2011 MOVING RESEARCH INTO ACTION

WHAT'S NEW?

 
AADR 4th Fall Focused Symposium panel discussion.

AADR held its 4th Fall Focused Symposium on November 3-4, 2011, at the Renaissance Washington, DC hotel. This year, the theme of the symposium was “Oral Health Disparities Research and the Future Face of America.”

AADR created the Fall Focused Symposium under the objective to provide networking opportunities and exchange of ideas, and to offer small regional symposia focused on cutting-edge technology and techniques. At this two-day scientific program, attendees had the opportunity to attend sessions, view 33 scientific posters, collaborate with colleagues and attend a panel discussion.

The symposium brought together key opinion leaders, scientists from the NIH, NIDCR and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, along with NIH-funded investigators and academicians. Newly appointed NIDCR Director Martha Somerman presented a session titled “Research to Address Oral Health Disparities: an NIDCR Priority.”

The symposium was recorded and will be available for download at the IADR/AADR Knowledge Community at http://www.aadronline.org/knowledgecommunity

Immunopathogenesis of HIV/AIDS-related Oral Manifestations and Host Immunity (R01 and R21)

Information about the R01Grant
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the NIDCR encourages R01 research projects that propose studies to translate new scientific insights about HIV infection, oral pathogen co-infections (viruses, bacteria and fungi) and AIDS-related oral opportunistic infections (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) into better understanding of the immunopathogenesis of these infectious agents to guide translational research focused on the development of novel, oral mucosal prophylactic HIV vaccines as well as therapeutic strategies against HIV, oral co-infections and oral opportunistic infections. December 7, 2011, is the open date to submit applications. Visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-334.html for more information.

Information about the R21Grant
This FOA issued by the NIDCR encourages Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant applications that propose studies to translate new scientific insights about HIV infection, oral pathogen co-infections (viruses, bacteria and fungi) and AIDS-related oral opportunistic infections (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) into better understanding of the immunopathogenesis of these infectious agents to guide translational research focused on the development of novel, oral mucosal prophylactic HIV vaccines as well as therapeutic strategies against HIV, oral co-infections and oral opportunistic infections. The R21 mechanism intends to support early stages of high risk-high impact research that may lead to breaking new ground or extending previous discoveries. December 7, 2011, is the open date to submit applications. Visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-333.html for more information.
