EOFY22: Contributing to the work of the Australian Dental Research Foundation


“ADRF [Australian Dental Research Foundation] the funding allowed us to broaden our research parameters and introduce greater innovation.

Manju Sofia Pitchai is a PhD candidate undertaking research focused on improving osseointegration to maximize success in dental implantology. She hopes her work will inspire other recent dental graduates to become researchers.

As of the close of business on March 31 this year, the ADRF had received 114 applications for funding from dental researchers, like Manju, from across Australia.

The ADRF would need more than $1.2 million to fund them all.

Over the next few months, the ADRF Research Advisory Committee, under its new Chair, Associate Professor Deb Cockrell AM, will evaluate each application and recommend to the ADRF Board of Directors which projects should receive funding. financial support. These are tough decisions…and that’s why our assessment process is so rigorous.

We know that among those who lack funding, there are still projects that deserve to be funded. With your help, we can increase the number of projects that can be supported.

If you’re considering supporting ADRF’s work to build dental research capacity in Australia, there’s surely no better time to donate than tax time – before June 30th!

The ADRF is a registered charity (ACN 632 256 976) and every donation is tax deductible.
