The American College of Prosthodontists Education Foundation is proud to announce a new research 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.

  • medication use and management of dry mouth;
  • prosthodontic patient caries risk assessment and interventions;
  • patient mediated outcomes associated with prosthodontic therapy;
  • hypersensitivity; and
  • acid erosion.

One, single-year funding in the amount up to $25,000 (U.S. currency) toinitiate or foster research in these areas will be awarded to an ACP member Prosthodontist and to his/her institution. Investigators who receive single-year awards may be invited to apply for support in future years, contingent on availability of funds.
