New Sunstar GUIDOR® award! 07/12/2016

Sunstar GUIDOR® is proud and honored to announce the creation of the IADR KARRING-NYMAN SUNSTAR GUIDOR AWARD, a new prestigious award that has been developed with the IADR and is sponsored by the Sunstar Foundation.

As the association with the reknown and respected IADR suggests it (the International Association for Dental Research), this award aims to support research within the field of oral tissue regeneration. It pays tribute to Prs Karring and Nyman, the fathers of periodontal regeneration whose research is at the base of dental membranes in general and of GUIDOR bioresorbable matrix barrier in particular, the first alloplastic bioresorbable regenerative membrane specifically designed on the concept of Guided Tissue regeneration. 


Figure 1: Sunstar was happy and proud to be able to give the very first KARRING-NYMAN SUNSTAR GUIDOR award to Pr Karring earlier this year for his outstanding contribution to GTR.


The award consists of a trophy and an associated prize of 10 000€ and is based on a competitive participation of doctoral or PhD students, researchers mainly, university people who work on oral tissue regeneration. Attributed on an annual basis, the 1st award will be presented during the General Session & Exhibition of the IADR next 2017 spring.  The deadline for submission of the abstract is 31st december 2016.
