Colgate and The Oral & Dental Research Trust are pleased to invite applications for the 2012 Colgate DCP Research Awards for research conducted by Dental Care Professionals (DCP).
A maximum of four awards, of up to £5,000 each, will be made on the basis of an application for support of investigations of clinical relevance, particularly in the field of preventive care.

Applications should consist of no more than two A4 pages summarising the background, aims and methodology of the research proposal and the role to be played by the applicant in the study.
The way in which the award will support the investigation must be specified.
Successful applicants will be required to attend the BDA Conference & Exhibition in Manchester on 26 April 2012 where they will be presented with their awards at a Champagne reception and luncheon held to celebrate their success.
