Professor Graham Ogden from the University of Dundee has been awarded the 2019 IADR Distinguished Scientist Award in oral medicine and pathology research, one of the highest awards in dental research
He was presented with the accolade at the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) 97th general session and exhibition of the IADR, held in Vancouver.
‘I am deeply honoured to have received this award from IADR, which represents colleagues from around the world,’ said Professor Ogden.
‘It is obviously very nice to be the focus of such recognition from one’s peers and it also shows the impact Dundee has made in dental research and the international reputation we hold.’
Highest honour bestowed by IADR
The Oral Medicine and Pathology Research award is one of the highest honours bestowed by IADR.
It recognises outstanding and sustained peer-reviewed research that has contributed to the understanding of the mechanisms governing the health and disease of the oral cavity and associated structures, principally encompassing skin, bone and the oral soft tissue.
The award consists of a monetary prize and a plaque.
Professor Ogden is chair in oral surgery at the university and is also dean of the dental faculty at the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons in Glasgow.
