Dentsply Sirona and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) congratulate the winners of the 2021 Student Competition for Advancing Dental Research and its Application Awards (SCADA) program.
Dentsply Sirona and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) congratulate the winners of the 2021 Student Competition for Advancing Dental Research and its Application Awards (SCADA) program. Dental students participated in the virtual competition and awards ceremony as part of this year’s IADR/AADR/CADR General Session & Exhibition.
The 62nd annual SCADA student research competition and awards program was held virtually and provided an opportunity for dental students to present their research to a distinguished panel of judges.
All US dental schools were invited to nominate a student to participate in the research competition in one of two categories – Clinical Science and Public Health Research and Basic and Translational Science. Each student submitted an abstract for review to the 2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session & Exhibition. Upon acceptance of the abstract, participants submitted a complete portfolio for review to an international panel of judges, including an electronic copy of his/her research poster, a slide presentation, and a video of the oral presentation. Research projects were submitted by 46 outstanding student clinicians and six award winners were selected. Each of the 46 student clinicians also presented their research virtually to meeting attendees of the General Session & Exhibition.
In addition, Dentsply Sirona sponsored 12 student research competitions in 12 countries, and five of these student winners were honored during the awards program. Read the full release here.
