Applications are now open for the current round of grants and scholarships offered by the Australian Dental Research Foundation, with 31 March 2021 the deadline for final submissions.
The evolution of dentistry is directly related to advancements made through research. It’s hard to imagine dentistry today without high-speed drills, fluoride, dental implants, cone beam CT, enamel remineralisation or advanced aesthetic dental materials. All of these came about as a result of dental research.
Dental research in Australia must continue to be advanced and the ADRF—a joint initiative of the Australian Dental Association and the Australian Dental Industry Association—plays a critical role in funding dental and oral health research in Australia.
The ability of the ADRF to fund this important research depends heavily on the support of the dental industry and dental professionals; their donations make it possible for the ADRF to offer a range of grants and scholarships each year to researchers and research teams interested in undertaking a dental or oral health research project.
