Alexandria, Va. The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) has announced Dolphus Dawson, III, as the 2010 AADR Neal W. Chilton Fellowship in Clinical Research recipient. He will be recognized at the AADR Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Washington, DC, March 3, 2010.
Currently, Dawson is the assistant professor of periodontics and associate director of the Delta Dental of Kentucky Clinical Research Center, in the College of Dentistry at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. In addition, he serves on AADR's Ethics Committee.
The Neal W. Chilton Fellowship will support Dawson in the biostatistical analysis of a dataset from the Effects of Periodontal Therapy on Preterm Birth (OPT study). The analysis will determine if clinical measures, microbiology and serum inflammatory markers are associated with the outcome of preeclampsia in the OPT study population.
Sponsored by the Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research and established in memory of Neal W. Chilton, the late executive director of the Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research, a clinician and statistician who made major contributions to the advancement of clinical research in dentistry, the Neal W. Chilton Fellowship was designed to enable dental clinical faculty to obtain training in clinical research. The Fellowship provides a $5,000 stipend and an additional $1,500 for travel.
