AADR Neal W. Chilton Fellowship in Clinical Research
Supported by The Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research
Task Force on Design & Analysis
The Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research is a group of biostatisticians, clinicians, epidemiologists, and basic scientists with experience in oral health research and clinical trials. The membership includes individuals from universities, private research centers, government, and industry. The Task Force has its origins in the 1968 Dental Caries Conference co-sponsored by the US Public Health Service (USPHS) and the ADA, which established a standardized methodology for conducting clinical trials testing efficacy of products designed to prevent dental caries. For over thirty years, Dr. Neal Chilton, trained in both dental research and Biostatistics, almost single handedly guided the Task Force as its Executive Director. His vision and dedication had a seminal influence on the development of the Task Force into its present role as an impartial leader in the design and analysis of oral health clinical research.
The Task Force has two primary goals:
The purpose of this Fellowship is to enable dental clinical faculty to obtain training in clinical research. Applicants must have completed a professional degree (preference given for a D.D.S or a D.M.D.) and hold an appointment at an accredited dental school or academic research center. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents of the US, and members of the AADR.
Applicants must submit the following:
Submissions must include a plan to gain expertise in clinical research at an institution with an established clinical research capability. The training planshould allow the successful applicant to learn state-of-the-art methodology related to clinical research, including principles of biostatistical methods, epidemiology and multi-site clinical trials. The applicant may also describe a research project using the methodology in the field of oral health. After the training is completed, the applicant will be expected to submit a brief report to the AADR outlining the benefits derived from the training and his/her research training activities.
One award in the amount of $5000 will be made each year. This award is intended to provide travel and other support related to training during the Fellowship period. An additional stipend of $1500 will be awarded to cover travel costs for the awardee.
Selection of the successful candidate will be made by the Fellowships Committee of the AADR and a Task Force on Design and Analysis Committee. The Committees' decision will be made in December, 2011, and the winner will be notified thereafter. The award winner will be formally announced at the 41st Annual Meeting of the AADRinTampa, Florida, March 21-24, 2012.
This Fellowship is sponsored by a generous donation from the Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research.
