The William J. Gies Award is given for the best paper published in the Journal of Dental Research during the preceding year. Nominations are made by individuals, by the Gies Award Committee, and by the Editor of the JDR. Most IADR/AADOCR awards are restricted to certain disciplines of research, but the JDR Gies Award is one of the few open to anyone who publishes in the Journal of Dental Research.




The Gies Award consists of a $1,000 monetary prize and a plaque which will be presented at the Opening Ceremonies of either the AADOCR/CADR Annual Meeting & Exhibition or IADR General Session & Exhibition



IADR/AADOCR members are invited to send nominations for outstanding papers published in the JDR between July 2020 and June 2021.



Nominations and questions should be sent to Anthony Jones; Awards, Fellowships and Grants Coordinator at
