Harvard student receives Foundation research award
October 15, 2018
The ADA Foundation has named Dr. R. Frederick Lambert the recipient of the 2018 ADA Foundation Crest and Oral-B Promising Researcher Award.
The recognition was launched in 2017 by the Foundation and Procter & Gamble.
Dr. Lambert earned his D.M.D. from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 2018 and is seeking a master’s degree from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
This award is designed to promote and recognize excellence in oral health research that advances preventive dentistry.
Dr. Lambert has already developed a study to explore access to both general and oral health care among otherwise healthy HIV-positive young adults living in a township setting. For this project, he spent 10 weeks in Cape Town, South Africa, where he trained and supervised a research assistant in qualitative interviewing skills and managed recruitment and enrollment of participants.
Dr. Lambert will receive $5,000 to attend a scientific conference to further his knowledge and/or to present findings. The next application period will open on April 5, 2019.
