Nomination deadline is June 27

April 07, 2014

The ADA is accepting nominations until June 27 for the 2014 Norton M. Ross Award for Excellence in Clinical Research.

The annual award, established in 1991, recognizes investigators whose clinical research has influenced some aspect of clinical dentistry in a meaningful way. At the same time, it commemorates the work of Dr. Norton M. Ross, a dentist and pharmacologist who spent most of his career in academic and research positions.

The ADA sponsors the Norton M. Ross Award with generous support from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products, Division of McNeil-PPC Inc.

"It is a privilege for us to sponsor the 24th Norton M. Ross Award and highlight great accomplishments in clinical research," said Dr. Marcelo W.B. Araujo, Ph.D., senior director of Global Consumer Healthcare Scientific & Professional Affairs, Johnson & Johnson Consumer & Personal Products Worldwide, Division of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies Inc. "The award is an annual reminder of Dr. Norton Ross' leadership and legacy in oral care clinical research, and reflects the Johnson & Johnson's Credo, which values the community and improvement of public health."

The 2014 recipient will receive a $5,000 honorarium and a plaque. Since the award's founding, 23 investigators have received the honor. Dr. Paul A. Moore was the award recipient in 2013.

Nominate a candidate by submitting a letter explaining his or her impact on clinical dentistry research, the candidate's curriculum vitae and a list of publications in refereed journals to Kathleen Alexandrakis, The Norton M. Ross Award, American Dental Association, 211 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60611, or email alexandrakisk@ada.org.
