IU student receives Gert Quigley Fellowship

May 18, 2015 The American Association for Dental Research has awarded a third-year Indiana University College of Dentistry student its 2015-16 Gert Quigley Fellow.

Joshua Evans said in a press release, “The future of dentistry and the methods that are used to treat patients all start from a research base. In my opinion, the three biggest issues concerning research and the government are: receiving more money for the (National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research) to help get future projects funded; implementing more evidence based dentistry into practice; and helping get students more interested and involved in research.”

Mr. Evans earlier this year earned the second place award in the AADR Student Research Group DENTSPLY/Caulk competition and an AADR fellowship for his future research with regenerative endodontics. He was also in 2013 and 2014 awarded a student research fellowship from Indiana’s dental school. In 2011, he received his B.S. in chemistry from Butler University in Indianapolis.

The Gert Quigley Public Policy Fellowship is designed to familiarize dental school, Ph.D. or dual degree students with the federal legislative process as it relates to basic and translational dental and craniofacial research, as well as research on the oral health care delivery system.

The AADR said applications for the 2016-17 Gert Quigley Public Policy Fellowship will be available in March 2016.
