Research is to promote the advancement of research in all sciences pertaining to
the oral cavity, its adjacent structures, and their relation to the body as a whole;
the utilization of this knowledge for the promotion of better approaches to the
prevention and treatment of oral diseases and other diseases of the head and neck;
and the improvement of communication and cooperation among all investigators in
order to share this knowledge for the benefit of all people.
Funds have been set aside to provide faculty, who are INAADR members in good
standing, the opportunity to invite outside speakers/scholars to visit IUSD. Up
to two applications per faculty member will be considered annually and the
maximum award per funded application is $600.
