About the award
This marks the ninth year of the research grant sponsored by Philips Oral Healthcare and offered through the IADR Periodontal Research Group. The objective is to provide seed funding for a postdoctoral student/staff who is within 12 months of successfully completing a Ph.D. at the time of the submission deadline, and wishes to establish an independent program of research.
The research proposal must have a clinical theme in line with Philips Oral Healthcare's desire to support and promote clinical research. Studies that are purely laboratory-based and not involving human material/samples will not be considered. The main judging criteria is relevance/importance and scientific quality, but an upward moderation applies for intercontinental collaborative applications.
