The Sir Wilfred Fish Research Prize, instituted in 1970, is awarded annually by the British Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, with the object of encouraging researchers in the early stages of their career. The Prize takes the form of a cash award of £1,000.
The 2020 judges shortlisted the applications to the following three entries:
- Patrick Fee - "Examining the effectiveness of different dental recall strategies on maintenance of periodontal health: four-year results from a randomised controlled trial"
- Cher Farrugia - "Role of Fusobacterium nucleatum and Multispecies Interactions in Endothelial Damage"
- Rajaishee Armugam - "Comparing the Attitudes of Dental Students from Japan to those from the UK and Brazil When Managing Patients with Inherited Bleeding Disorders."
The entrants were given the opportunity to present their research, via webinar, on the 8th December. The judges were extremely impressed by all of the presentations, which can be viewed here: https://www.bsperio.org.uk/professionals/awards-prizes-2020
The BSP is delighted to announce that the winner of The Sir Wilfred Fish Research Prize 2020 is Cher Farrugia.
