Derek T. Turner
Student Research Awards of NC-AADR


In the fall of 1989, Dr. Derek T. Turner passed away after almost 25 years of service to the UNC School of Dentistry and Dental Research Institute. The NC-AADR approved a motion in 1990 at the Annual Meeting to formulate a student research award in his honor to be awarded annually by the section. In 1991, a plaque was developed and an Awards Committee was established to select deserving individuals during Dental Research in Review Day presentations. The first awards were first presented in 1992. In general, the Awards Committee considers individuals for undergraduate and graduate categories for clinical and basic science research. By agreement of the Section, awards are determined by the Awards Committee based on merit and not necessarily based on award categories, with up to five awards presented annually. In 1994, Procter and Gamble donated moneys to NC-AADR to co-sponsor the Dental Research in Review Day and help to support these student research awards.
