2014 GSK Prosthodontist Innovator Award
The ACP Education Foundation is proud to announce the 2014 Prosthodontist Innovator Award. The goals of this sponsored research are to advance the understanding of prosthodontics-related biological and/or materials systems, human behavior, cost and care delivery, as well as economic modeling and quality of life investigations.
Sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare through an unrestricted educational grant, single-year funding in the amount up to $25,000 to initiate or foster research in these areas will be awarded to an ACP member prosthodontist and to his/her institution. This educational grant is open to prosthodontists who are within 5 years of their initial appointment at a US or Canadian dental school or related academic institutions.
Completed applications must be received by the ACP Education Foundation by Dec. 10. The ACP Research Committee will select the award winner by Dec. 31. For more information, please see the Application Guidelines or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACPEF Research Fellowships in Prosthodontics
The ACP Education Foundation is committed to assisting the dental profession in its quest for continuous improvement in clinical care. This fall, the ACPEF will be awarding research fellowship grants in the amount of $6,000. These will be awarded to support meritorious research proposals that seek to advance basic scientific and applied clinical knowledge in the area of prosthodontics.
ACPEF wishes to support promising research conducted by dental scientists-in-training. The awarding of a fellowship grant will obligate the grantee to submit a manuscript based on the work to the Journal of Prosthodontics and an abstract based on the work to the ACP Annual Session within two years of the award. The grantee will be required to submit one brief progress reports per year until the previously stated obligations have been met.
Any investigation relevant to prosthodontic care is appropriate. This would include all disciplines in prosthodontics: fixed, implant, maxillofacial, and removable prosthetics.
This competition is open to all prosthodontics residents who are members of the ACP. Please review the submission guidelines carefully and return applications to the ACPEF by Nov. 10, 2014.
