Frechette Awards
The winners of the 2014 Frechette Awards were recently presented at the International Association for Dental Research annual meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. The Frechette is the annual research competition for new investigators sponsored by the Prosthodontics Group of the International Association for Dental Research and honoring the memory of Arthur R. Frechette who served as SecretaryTreasurer of the IADR from 1968 until 1977. The winners were Dr. Hiroko Ogawa, Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry, Suita-city, Osaka, Japan for “Vertical Bone Augmentation Using iPS Cell Constructs with Simvastatin” and Dr. Beatriz Gimenez Gonzalez, University Complutense of Madrid, Madrid, Spain for “Accuracy and Repeatability of Intra-oral Scanners for Full-arch Implant Impressions”.

Rosenstiel, Frechette Coordinator IADR Prosthodontics Group. In addition to the plaques Drs. Ogawa and Gimenez Gonzalez each received a check for $1000 thanks to the generous support of the Whip Mix Corporation. New investigators in Prosthodontics are encouraged to apply for one of two 2015 Arthur R. Frechette Research Awards in Prosthodontics. Each Award recognizes original research by new investigators and is sponsored by the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR and supported by the Whip Mix Corporation. One award is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Materials Science or Bioengineering oriented protocol and the other is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Biological Sciences and Tissue Engineering oriented protocol. Researchers carrying out original research are eligible for the Frechette Award if they have been the primary author of no more than three articles published in refereed dental journals. Each award carries a cash prize of $1,000. Research submitted for the IADR meeting in Boston, Massachusetts is eligible for consideration for the Frechette Award, provided it has not been published elsewhere or will not be under consideration for another award. Abstracts must be submitted to the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR by the IADR deadline with the appropriate boxes on the on-line submission checked. The abstracts will be judged for (1) originality and scientific design of the investigation, (2) suitability of the methods of analysis, and (3) scientific value of the work. Selected finalists will be judged at the 2015 IADR meeting in Boston, Massachusetts (March 11-14, 2015) and the winner will be announced at the Prosthodontics Group Business Meeting.
