Research Funding Opportunity
Design and Development of Novel Dental Composite Restorative Systems (U01)
Deadline: January 31, 2013
The intent of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the design and development of novel dental composite restorative systems that demonstrate superiority in material properties and endurance in the oral environment over the currently used bisphenol A glycidyl methacrylate/triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (Bis-GMA/TEGDMA)-based systems. The goal is not to incrementally improve the currently utilized dental composite restorative systems, but rather to develop a novel, new composite polymer as part of a complete dental composite restorative system.
