IADR Arthur Frechette Award


Tuesday, October 07, 2014
New investigators in Prosthodontics are encouraged to apply for one of two 2015 Arthur R. Frechette Research Awards in Prosthodontics. Each Award recognizes original research by new investigators and is sponsored by the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR and supported by the Whip Mix Corporation. One award is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Materials Science or Bioengineering oriented protocol and the other is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Biological Sciences and Tissue Engineering oriented protocol. Researchers carrying out original research are eligible for the Frechette Award if they have been the primary author of no more than three articles published in refereed dental journals.

Each award carries a cash prize of $1,000.

Research submitted for the 2015 IADR General Session & Exhibition, is eligible for consideration for the Frechette Award, provided it has not been published elsewhere or will not be under consideration for another award. Abstracts must be submitted to the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR by the deadline (October 7, 2014) with the appropriate boxes on the on-line submission checked.

The abstracts will be judged for (1) originality and scientific design of the investigation, (2) suitability of the methods of analysis, and (3) scientific value of the work. Selected finalists asked to submit manuscripts and these and their oral presentation will be judged at the 2015 General Session & Exhibition of the IADR/AADR/CADR (March 11-14, 2015). The oral presentation should be 10 minutes in length and is followed by 5 minutes of questions about the research from the judges and the audience. Frechette finalists who are not confident of their English Language skills may choose to designate a colleague to translate questions; however, this person must not add to the responses or "improve" on the finalist's answers. The winners will receive their awards at the Prosthodontics Research Group Business Meeting.
