Koo receives IADR Young Investigator AwardThe International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening here today at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre for its 84th General Session, has awarded the 2006 Young Investigator Award to Dr. Hyun (Michel) Koo, University of Rochester, NY.
Dr. Koo represents the best and brightest of a new generation of young investigators. His work in microbial biofilms represents the cutting edge for dental and oral craniofacial research and shows that the future of dental research is in good hands.
The IADR Young Investigator Award, supported by The Procter & Gamble Co., is designed to stimulate basic research in all dental disciplines. To be eligible for the award, the recipient must not have reached his/her 36th birthday at the time the award is presented. The award consists of a cash prize and plaque.
Dr. Koo receives his award during the Opening Ceremonies of the IADR's 84th General Session. One of 15 Distinguished Scientist Awards conferred annually by the IADR, the award represents the highest honor the IADR can bestow.
