GSK Prosthodontist Innovator Award: Call for Applications

GSK_LOGO_with_StraplineThe ACP Education Foundation is proud to announce the 2017 GSK Prosthodontist Innovator Award which supports key areas of interest for the future of prosthodontics.

The goals of this sponsored research are to advance the understanding of prosthodontics-related biological and/or materials systems, human behavior, cost and care delivery, as well as economic modeling and quality of life investigations.

All submissions will be evaluated and scored by members of the ACP Research Committee. Evaluation criteria include scholarly potential of the Principal Investigator, background and scope, significance and innovation, approach, anticipated results and alternatives, feasibility, and capability to foster related research activity.

The ACP/ACPEF provides one or two single-year award(s) to initiate or foster research in specific areas of interest relating to prosthodontic care. The maximum amount for the award is $25,000 (U.S. currency). Investigators who receive single-year awards may be invited to apply for support in future years, contingent on availability of funds.

This research grant is open to prosthodontist members (Members, Fellows) of the ACP who are full-time faculty at a US or a Canadian dental school or a related academic institution. Applicants must be within 10 years of their initial appointment and show outstanding promise in their research area.
