The ADA is accepting nominations for the 2015 Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Dental Research until May 15.

The Gold Medal Award honors individuals who help advance dentistry through basic or clinical research or improve the oral health of the public in a major way. Every three years, the ADA recognizes the stellar accomplishments of a single dental researcher with the award.

The winner will receive $25,000 and a commemorative gold medallion. The ADA will cover expenses for the recipient’s lodging and travel to the formal award presentation. If eligible, the recipient also will serve a three-year term as a member of the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs.

The ADA and Church & Dwight Co. Inc. co-sponsor the Gold Medal Award. The 2012 recipient was Dr. John S. Greenspan.
