What is the Volpe Prize?
Volpe Prize, which is named in honor of Anthony
Volpe, is a 3,500 US Dollar award presented for the best
clinical research in periodontology by students in dentistry. One
abstract from each dental academic institution in North America
(Canada, Mexico and the United States) will be accepted for review by a panel of 5
judges. From these abstracts, 12 finalists will be selected to make
oral presentations at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio on
May 17, 2013. Each finalist will provide a 15-minute presentation
based on the abstract, followed by a 10-minute question-and-answer
period. Each finalist will receive a $500 travel grant and the
winner of the competition will receive the cash prize and a
certificate of recognition.
