International Association for Dental Research GlaxoSmithKline Innovation in Oral Care Awards
Supported by GlaxoSmithKline
Deadline: December 9, 2013
The Innovation in Oral Care Awards (“Award(s)”) are jointly sponsored by IADR and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), with funding provided exclusively by GSK. The IADR mission is to advance research and increase knowledge for the improvement of oral health worldwide. It does so through its Divisions and Sections as well as in partnership with international dental associations, industry, health agencies, and scientific and educational professional organizations. These innovation awards offer opportunities for investigators to conduct dental research that will have a direct impact on the oral health of the public.
As a leader in consumer oral care, GSK recognizes the need for pioneers to produce innovative technologies that can be used routinely by the public to maintain and improve oral health and quality of life. The Award(s) is intended to help investigators pursue innovative and novel research in oral care, above and beyond the bounds of traditional dental research.
Competitive Award(s), of up to $75,000 each, will be provided to recipients to advance oral care programs directed toward the development of innovative and novel compounds, biomaterials or devices that can be used ultimately at the public health level. Examples of areas of interest could include, but not be limited to:
• inhibition or removal of biofilms etc. adhering to natural or artificial surfaces,
• modification of those surfaces to inhibit biofilms and other deposits, stains and odors,
• adhesives for removable prosthetic devices,
• inhibition of tooth surface loss and gingival recession, and amelioration of their effects, and
• counteracting the oral effects of dry mouth, systemic illness, hormonal disturbances or physiological aging.
The Award(s) will be provided in the form of an unrestricted research grant which carries no obligation to the recipient’s organization for licensure, patenting, or transfer confidential information, although GSK may discuss the possibility of future collaboration with some applicants.
• The principal investigator listed in the application must be a current member of, or at the time of submission have made bona fide application to, IADR.
• To fulfill the quest for innovation, proposals should be collaboratively sponsored by at least one researcher whose principal expertise is in an area of biotechnology other than a dental science.
• The intent is to encourage collaboration with researchers from outside the dental institution; nevertheless, the most important criterion involves the innovative nature of the proposed research.
• Applicants should possess advanced degrees and must hold an affiliation with an academic center, not-for-profit institution, or for-profit entities such as biotechnology start-up companies.
• Letters of support from the principal investigator’s (PI) institution are required and should describe the nature of the PI’s appointment and commitments to the PI, such as lab and office space, technical assistance or travel funds.
Time Frame for Submission, Review, and Award:
Proposals Due: December 9, 2013
Award(s) Announcement and notification: February, 2014
Completed applications should be submitted online before the closing date of December 9, 2013.
Further information can be obtained from the Sheri S. Herren, Strategic Programs Manager (Email: email@example.com).
Interested parties are welcome to submit a brief proposal letter outlining the research to IADR and asking for a determination as to whether such research would qualify for consideration.
