This year the BSODR will announce the winners of our annual prize competitions during the BSODR Annual Meeting, Leeds, UK, 3rd to 5th September 2019. The BSODR will host the following prizes with variable eligibility for undergraduate and postgraduate students and early career researchers:

  • Senior Colgate prize                                                      
  • Junior Colgate Undergraduate prize
  • BSODR Poster prize                                                        
  • GSK Mineralised Tissue Group (MINTIG) Travel award
  • Voco Prize for Dental Biomaterials Research     
  • Oral Medicine and Pathology (OMP) group prize (best oral and poster presentations)

Enter on-line during abstract submission.  Please check the eligibility criteria here and remember that you may enter for one prize only – please do not submit for multiple prize entries.

Those entering the Colgate prizes should also indicate their willingness to also be considered as the BSODR entrant for the IADR Hatton Prize in 2020.

Please note that due to popularity in entry for the Senior Colgate prize, entries will be triaged before the meeting, judged on your abstract and a 1,500-word manuscript also to be submitted as part of this prize entry (deadline for submission is approximately 4 weeks after abstract submission).  Only entries deemed to provide sufficient research quality will proceed to be judged, via an oral presentation in the Colgate prize session, during the BSODR meeting.  Unsuccessful entries will be scheduled into the general scientific programme.
