AAE Foundation seeks applicants for $2.5 million fund supporting pulpal regeneration research
The American Association of Endodontists and its AAE Foundation are seeking applications for up to $2.5 million in funding to support one or more research projects to investigate regenerative endodontic treatment.
Applications are due Aug. 1, 2013. Download guidelines and application from the AAE website.
AAE Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the AAE, based in Chicago. The foundation's goal in seeking research projects to fund is to obtain reliable evidence about the conditions under which pulpal regeneration occurs in patients, according to an AAE press release.
The AAE/AAEF seek studies that will build the evidence base supporting regenerative endodontic therapy in clinical practice and that may also aid in the design of future clinical trials investigating the efficacy of pulpal regenerative treatments.
The AAE collects data on regenerative endodontics and maintains it through its Regenerative Endodontics Database. Practitioners may submit information related to revascularization cases to the database, which will be used in endodontic research, to assist in establishing treatment best practices and to clarify future research initiatives for cutting-edge therapies.
