Alexandria, Va., USA – The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) are pleased to learn that IADR/AADR JDR Clinical & Translational Research inaugural editor Jocelyne Feine has been named the recipient of the 2016 American Dental Association (ADA) Norton M. Ross Award for Excellence in Clinical Research. In honor of this award, Feine will receive a $5,000 honorarium and a plaque, which will be presented at the ADA 2016 – America's Dental Meeting, taking place October 20 to 24, 2016, in Denver, Colorado.
The ADA has presented the annual award, financially supported by Johnson & Johnson, since 1991 to recognize investigators who have made significant contributions in clinical investigations that have advanced the diagnosis, treatment, and/or prevention of craniofacial-oral-dental diseases, as well as outstanding research endeavors in other areas. As a professor at McGill University Faculty of Dentistry, Montréal, QC, Feine's studies emphasize the quality of life and patient-based outcomes most relevant for palliative therapeutic goals. From randomized clinical trials to technology assessment, knowledge transfer and health care management, her work covers the continuum of discovery to action.
Feine earned her M.S. in physiology at the University of Texas, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Houston, Texas, USA. She earned her D.D.S. at the University of Texas Faculty of Dentistry in Houston.
