AADR awards the 2012 AADR William B. Clark Fellowship to Leena Palomo

March 21, 2012

Tampa, Fla., USA. - The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) has announced Leena Palomo as the recipient of the 2012 AADR William B. Clark Fellowship in Clinical Research. This award will be announced at the AADR Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Tampa, Florida on March 24, 2012.

Palomo is an assistant professor in the Department of Periodontics, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. Her research interest is the effect of bisphophonates on the periodontium in postmenopausal women. The Clark Fellowship will allow Dr. Palomo to gain expertise using multiplex ELISA testing for serum inflammatory cytokines and "checkerboard" DNA-DNA hybridization techniques.

Palomo plans to collect subgingival biofilm and crevicular fluid samples from a population of otherwise healthy postmenopausal women diagnosed with periodontitis who are using bisphosphonate therapy for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and samples from demographically matched postmenopausal women who do not use such therapy. Microbial species and cytokine response between the two groups will be compared.

The AADR William B. Clark Fellowship was established in memory of William B. Clark and is supported by P&G Professional Oral Health, Crest Oral-B. The award recognizes investigators carrying out clinical research in periodontology.
