One of the most prestigious awards in dentistry, the André Schroeder Research Prize serves to promote new scientific findings in implant dentistry and related fields. This annual award was established in 1992 and is presented by the ITI in honor of the late Professor André Schroeder (1918-2004), the founding ITI President, who pioneered implant dentistry and whose lifework contributed significantly to modern dentistry.
Would you like to follow in the footsteps of Benjamin Coyac, Michael Payer and all the other winners and take up the chance to win this prestigious award? Then don’t wait any longer and apply for the 2022 André Schroeder Research Prizes before the application deadline on September 15, 2021.
