AADR Government Action Alert - Advocate Today!

Last year Congress implemented devastating budget cuts known as sequestration and shutdown the federal government. This year, despite the efforts of our community, the appropriations process has stalled and increased funding for dental, oral and craniofacial research may not happen. 

Volunteers Needed! – Commission on Dental Accreditation Consultants/Site Visitors

AADR is assisting the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) to identify consultants/site visitors in the basic sciences. Please note that CODA defines the basic sciences broadly to include basic, clinical and translational research activities. Ph.D., non-clinical faculty are eligible. If however the nominee is a dentist, they must be an ADA member.

IADR/AADR Publish Fourth Clinical Supplement to the JDR and Release First Podcast

The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) released the fourth clinical supplement to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR). This issue encompasses the complete spectrum of oral, dental and craniofacial investigation with a focus on clinical and translational research.

Call for Papers in JDR Clinical Supplement

The Journal of Dental Research is pleased to announce the publication of its fifth supplement encompassing all areas of clinical research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. This peer-reviewed supplement will bring emerging contributions in discovery and translational science to clinical application for the healthcare community.

Researchers Use Light to Coax Stem Cells to Repair Teeth

A Harvard-led team is the first to demonstrate the ability to use low-power light to trigger stem cells inside the body to regenerate tissue, an advance they reported in Science Translational Medicine.  The research, led by AADR member David J. Mooney, Robert P. Pinkas Family Professor of Bioengineering at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, lays the foundation for a host of clinical applications in restorative dentistry and regenerative medicine more broadly, such as wound healing, bone regeneration, and more. Mooney was the 2007 recipient of the IADR Isaac Schour Memorial Award.

FOA: Research on Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions

The NIH has released a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on research on chronic overlapping pain conditions. The purpose of this FOA is to encourage epidemiological, clinical and translational research that will increase our understanding of the natural history, prevalence, biological mechanisms, psychological variables and clinical risk factors responsible for the presence of multiple chronic pain conditions in people with pain. 

FOA: Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Research Consortium to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Children

The NIDCR has issued two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) for “Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Research Consortium to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Children.” The overall goal of this initiative is to establish effective interventions or programs to reduce or eliminate oral health disparities and inequalities in vulnerable U.S. children who are between 0 and 21 years of age. 

Strides in Science

Margherita Fontana, D.D.S., Ph.D., is a professor (tenured) in the Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences and Endodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. 

July 15 – Application Deadline for the Young Investigators Initiative Grant Mentoring and Career Development Program

The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) and Bone and Joint Canada are dedicated to raising public awareness and to increasing research of musculoskeletal diseases. 

August 1 – Application Deadline for 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. The prize is awarded annually to one young scientist for outstanding life science research for which he/she was awarded a doctoral degree in the previous year. 

ADEA Introduces the Policy Center Webinar Series with Women’s Leadership - Leaning In: A New Era of Women Leaders

ADEA is launching a webinar series titled “Leading Conversations.” This series is intended to engage members of the dental education and higher education communities, as well as health care professionals and organizations, on the important issues and trends impacting dental education and oral health.

PRIM&R's 2014 AER Conference Global Research Scholarship Program

The Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research’s (PRIM&R) 2014 Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference will be held December 4-7, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland. PRIM&R is dedicated to improving communication among research ethics committees (RECs), researchers and others professionals involved in international research. 

Innovations in the Prevention and Treatment of Early Childhood Caries

The Innovations in the Prevention and Treatment of Early Childhood Caries will take place October 23-24, 2014 in Ellicott City, Maryland. During this conference, presenters will discuss evidence-based reviews that assess the potential of current and emerging approaches that address early childhood caries (ECC) prevalence, treatment, and guidelines.
