    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.
