AADR Neal W. Chilton Fellowship in Clinical Research

Supported by The Task Force on Design and Analysis in Dental and Oral Research


The purpose of the AADR Neal W. Chilton Fellowship was to enable dental clinical faculty to obtain training in clinical research. Applicants must have completed a professional degree (preference given for a D.D.S or a D.M.D.) and hold an appointment at an accredited dental school or academic research center. One award in the amount of $5000 was made each year to provide travel and other support related to training during the Fellowship period. An additional stipend of $1500 was awarded to cover travel costs for the awardee.
