Call for Proposals: American Association of Public Health Dentistry Foundation Small Grant Program
The AAPHD Foundation was established to support the primary goals of the Association including:
• Promotion of effective efforts in disease prevention, health promotion and service delivery;
• Education of the public, health professionals and decision-makers regarding the importance of oral health to total well-being; and
• Expansion of the knowledge base of dental public health and fostering competency in its practice.
One exciting opportunity that the Foundation creates for its members is the AAPHD Foundation Small Grant Program.
The Small Grant Program is designed to stimulate innovative education or research projects that benefit dental public health and the public. The Foundation’s guiding principles and funding areas of interest identify a broad array of topics for which support can be provided. These include studies or interventions designed to:
• Improve access to personal and population based oral health services
• Build and strengthen the dental public health workforce
• Translate science into practice
• Maintain competency in dental public health.
The program will provide “small grants” that serve as an incentive to individuals and entities to move science, policy, and practice to the “next step” toward enhancing oral health.
Priority will be given to:
• Applications from individuals who are at an early stage of their dental public health careers. We are especially interested in applications from residents in the DPH Residency programs who are completing their required research projects and from members of Student Chapters.
• Applications that seek to utilize and enhance partnership with existing programs, projects, and organizations.
Grant Program Requirements:
• Award recipients must be members of AAPHD.
• The funding activity has a limited duration, up to one year. However, a nonfunded extension may be granted for one additional year in order to complete the project.
• The recipient(s) will be required to submit a mid-year brief report and a final written report to the Foundation. The final report should include a financial and program summary of the project’s results.
• The recipient must present a poster at the National Oral Health Conference upon completion of their project.
• Travel costs to the annual meeting will be at the expense of the award recipients.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded. The grant will not pay institutional indirect costs, Principal Investigator’s salary, or patient care costs. The grant may be paid directly to individuals, institutions or sponsoring organizations upon receipt of an invoice.

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
