Nominations are invited for the IADR E.W. Borrow Memorial Award, which was established to recognize and stimulate research in oral health promotion for children, with a priority for caries prevention where fluoride in different formats is utilized.


Selection will be based on the originality of contributions and record of achievement in the field of oral health promotion and on the significance of research carried out on the oral health of children. Basic research, applied clinical research, and clinical investigation will be considered for the award as well. At the time of nomination, the nominee should be actively engaged in the area of research for which the award is presented.  Candidates MUST be IADR members.

Nominating Procedures:

Any IADR Division, Section, Group, or individual IADR member may nominate a candidate for this award. Once a nomination is made, it will be considered each year for five years.


The following documentation must accompany the nomination:

  • Name, address, and date of birth of the candidate;
  • Full curriculum vitae with lists of publications; and
  • A short statement describing the reasons the individual is being nominated for the award.


The award commenced in 1992 and is awarded annually. Nominations are reviewed by a BMF/IADR Committee. The individual selected will receive a monetary award of $3,500 and a plaque, which will be presented at the Opening Ceremonies of the IADR General Session & Exhibition.


The award is made in memory of the late E.W. Borrow and is generously supported by The Borrow Foundation.
