The Dr. James T. Mellonig Regeneration Research Award recognizes excellence in original research by a resident in the specialty of periodontics that advances clinical therapies in periodontal regeneration. The scholarship was created through a transformational gift from Dr. Jo Rummelhart in honor of Dr. Mellonig and the National Naval Medical Center's Periodontics Residency Program in Bethesda, Maryland, which Dr. Rummelhart completed. Applicants for the $10,000 award must be second or third year periodontal residents in US accredited programs or recent graduates having received their certificate in periodontics within the past three years as of the application deadline. Applicants also must have completed original research as a lead researcher/first author and produced a manuscript that potentially advances clinical therapies in periodontal regeneration. THE RESEARCH MAY DEAL WITH ANY ASPECT OF HARD OR SOFT TISSUE REGENERATION THAT ADVANCES OR SUPPORTS CLINICAL THERAPIES IN THE NATURAL DENTITION OR WITH DENTAL IMPLANT USE. The manuscript must be accepted for publication if not yet published.
