THE YFS FOUNDATION BASIC/CLINICAL TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH AWARD (BCTRA) FOR DENTAL SCIENCES
The YFS Foundation in collaboration with Dental Schools will offer awards to recognize excellence in Basic/Clinical translational research by junior investigator (within 5 years of completion of MDS/DDS or PhD) from any Department of the Dental School of Medicine. One such award will be presented annually.
NOTE: to promote “Team Science” applications can be made by more than one individual and if successful, the award will be shared equally. The BCTRA award seeks to stimulate increased research within each department of the Dental school leading to innovations to improve dental care. It is anticipated that scientific discoveries will be translated into therapeutic interventions for a wide range of dental diseases.
