Norton Ross Award nominees sought

The ADA is accepting nominations until June 14 for the 2013 Norton M. Ross Award for Excellence in Clinical Research.

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

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

"The Norton M. Ross Award was established to recognize investigators whose clinical research has had a meaningful impact
on clinical dentistry," said ADA President Robert Faiella. "Previous recipients comprise a group of distinguished individuals from diverse disciplines, whose outstanding contributions to clinical research truly reflect the objectives of the Award and honor the memory of Dr. Norton M. Ross."

"We are honored to sponsor the 23rd Norton M. Ross Award that celebrates achievement and leadership in clinical research," said Madeline Monaco, Ph.D., senior director of Global Scientific and Professional Affairs, Johnson & Johnson Consumer & Personal Products Worldwide Division of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies Inc. "This award aligns well with Johnson & Johnson's Credo values and caries on Dr. Norton Ross' legacy of elevating clinical research to the highest standards towards the goal of improving public health."

The 2013 recipient will receive a $5,000 honorarium and a plaque. Since the award's founding, 22 investigators have received the honor. Dr. Peter Milgrom was the award recipient in 2012.

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.
