    Philips Young Investigator Research Award

    About the award

     

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the research grant sponsored by Philips Oral Healthcare and offered through the IADR Periodontal Research Group. The goal of the grant is to provide seed funding for a postdoctoral student/staff member who is within 12 months of successfully completing a Ph.D. at the time of the submission deadline, and wishes to establish an independent program of research.

     

    The research proposal must have a clinical theme in line with Philips Oral Healthcare's desire to support and promote clinical research. The main judging criteria are relevance/importance and scientific quality, but an upward moderation applies for intercontinental collaborative applications.
