Meeting Announcement

International & American Associations for Dental Research

Alexandria, Va. - The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 411 Rapid Research Competition. The winners were recognized during the Opening Ceremonies of the virtual 50th Annual Meeting of the AADR, held in conjunction with the 99th General Session & Exhibition of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research (CADR), on July 21-24, 2021.

The AADR National Student Research Group (NSRG) began offering the 411 Rapid Research Competition in 2019 as an opportunity for pre-doctoral dental students to grow their ability to communicate their science to a non-scientific audience. Student competitors have 4 minutes and 1 slide to explain their research. The student will then be asked 1 question. Hence the name, 411. The award consists of two categories, basic science and clinical/public health and applicants are judged by NSRG officers.

Seven competitors were selected to compete within each category on July 12, 2021. The winners will be announced as part of the AADR NSRG Student Meeting & Awards Ceremony. The award will consist of a monetary award of:
