Christopher McCulloch receives the IADR Research in Oral Biology Award
Date:3/17/2009

Alexandria, Va. The 2009 Research in Oral Biology Award will be presented to Dr. Christopher McCulloch, from the University of Toronto, ON, Canada, at the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) 87th General Session & Exhibition in Miami, Florida, USA, on April 1, 2009.

Dr. McCulloch has been professor in the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry since 1994. He also serves as Director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Group in Matrix Dynamics and Canada Research Chair in Matrix Dynamics.

Dr. McCulloch received his B.Sc., D.D.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Toronto, and has more than 200 publications on topics including mechanisms that regulate the fibroblast cytoskeleton, collagen remodeling in the periodontium, and the responses of fibroblasts to inflammatory cytokines and mechanosensory signals. This work led to advances such as guided tissue regeneration, the first automated periodontal probe, and clinical studies linking metalloproteinases and progression of periodontitis, as well as several patents.

Sponsored by Church & Dwight Company, the Research in Oral Biology Award is one of the 16 IADR Distinguished Scientist Awards and is one of the highest honors bestowed by IADR. The award consists of a monetary prize and plaque and recognizes outstanding research in the field of oral biology.
