IADR Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group Award
The Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group is pleased to offer two student travel awards each in the amount of $1,000 sponsored by the Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group of the IADR.
To qualify for one of these awards you must be either:
1) A full time pre-doctoral D.D.S., D.M.D., Ph.D. or other student.
