2004 Research in Prosthodontics/Implants Award to Nishimura


Honolulu, Hawaii...At the Opening Ceremonies of the 82nd General Session of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening here today, the 2004 Research in Prosthodontics and Implants Award will be presented to Professor Ichiro Nishimura of the Division of Advanced Prosthodontics, Biomaterials, and Hospital Dentistry at the UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, USA.

The award has been made for his advances in four research fields, namely, molecular mechanisms of cell differentiation, tissue engineering of normal and functional tissue of the face, biotechnology application to wound healing, and human genome bio-informatics and silico-molecular modeling.

Supported by Procter & Gamble Denture Care and given in memory of Willard J Tarbet, this award was established to encourage and give recognition to outstanding research accomplishments in the field of prosthodontics. The Research in Prosthodontics and Implants Award is one of the 15 Distinguished Scientist Awards conferred annually by the IADR, representing the highest honor the IADR can bestow.
