AADR’s Member-Get-A-Member Campaign Ends June 30

On April 1, IADR/AADR launched a Member-Get-A-Member campaign that is designed to help current IADR/AADR members encourage their non-member colleagues to join the Associations in an effort to grow and strengthen the membership. We hope you will participate in this exciting opportunity! This incentivized program not only encourages new colleagues to join and partake in the IADR/AADR member benefits, but it also rewards current members for their successful recruitment efforts.

As Part of Your Benefits, Access the AADR/CADR Meeting Recordings in the Knowledge Community

In March, IADR/AADR announced that access to the IADR/AADR Knowledge Community is now a member benefit. The Knowledge Community houses recordings of cutting-edge presentations from IADR and AADR meetings, and at the conclusion of each recorded session a brief quiz may be completed for ADA CERP credit. Remember to take advantage of this premium opportunity to earn continuing education credits and to absorb some of the science that was shared at meetings.

AADR Selects University of California, Los Angeles Student for Gert Quigley Fellowship

AADR is pleased to announce the selection of Sarah Al-Hiyari from the University of California, Los Angeles as the 2014-15 Gert Quigley Fellow. Al-Hiyari is a third year Oral Biology Ph.D. student working with Flavia Pirih and Sotirios Tetradis. Her research focuses primarily on understanding the genetic basis of periodontitis. Al-Hiyari received her undergraduate degree in microbiology from Texas Tech University, where she graduated magna cum laude and she has a master’s degree in molecular biology.

New! ADA/AADR Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award

The American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) have established a faculty award for Evidence-Based Dentistry (EBD). The goal of this award is to acknowledge a dental school faculty member who has made significant contributions to implement and advance EBD. This award is supported by a contribution from Proctor and Gamble. 

Strides in Science


Chester Douglass, D.M.D., Ph.D., is professor emeritus of oral health policy and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Douglass received his D.M.D. from Temple University in 1965 and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan School of Public Health in 1971. 

Call for Proposals - NIH Bench-to-Bedside Program

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is accepting proposals for the intramural Bench-to-Bedside (B2B) Program. This is the 16th cycle of funding for these two-year awards designed to seed new projects that propose to translate basic science to human subjects or vice versa. Bench-to-Bedside proposals can fall into one of seven categories: AIDS; behavioral and social sciences; dietary supplements; minority health; rare diseases; women’s health; and, general (intramural-only) projects. 

NIH and AHRQ Announce Updated Policy for Application Submission

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently announced a change in policy on application submissions.

NIH Funding Opportunities

The National Institutes of Health have released Funding Opportunity Announcements that may be of interest to you. The purpose of the following two funding opportunity announcements is to encourage the establishment of measures of specific behavioral or social phenomena that can be used to test causal hypotheses about behavioral and social contributors to dental, oral or craniofacial diseases. 

Boston University Head and Neck Cancer Symposium and AADR Poster Prize

Boston University (an AADR Institutional Section Member) held its Head and Neck Cancer Symposium on April 28, 2014. This symposium will bring basic scientists and clinicians together to discuss the latest developments in Head & Neck Cancer research and therapy. 

AADR Buffalo Section Activities Summary 2013-2014

The goal of the AADR Buffalo Section is to promote scientific exchange between students and faculty members who are actively involved in research. This year several activities to foster collaboration within the University of Buffalo (UB) School of Dental Medicine (SDM) and the regional community were organized.

Putting the Latest Evidence into Practice

Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is about providing dentists with the best evidence so they can make informed treatment decisions and improve the quality of dental care. To learn how to easily access the best evidence and implement it into your education, practice, or policy, attend the EBD Champions Conference 2.0, May 9-10, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois. 

Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute at Columbia University

The 2014 Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute at Columbia University will take place June 2-27. Attending this summer program will provide you with opportunities to gain foundational knowledge and applied skills for advancing population health research. The short courses are offered in New York City and in online distance learning formats.

The New York Academy of Sciences’ Scientists Teaching Science

The New York Academy of Sciences is holding an online summer course "Scientists Teaching Science” June 4-25, 2014. There are no mandatory class meetings and you can access the course on your phone. One-on-one engagement, personal review of written assignments and personalized advice on teaching is guaranteed!

Award Opportunity – The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists

Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab, a coordinated effort of four universities, have joined forces in creating the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists.
