Align Technology To Award Research Programs Advancing Orthodontic and Dental Patient Care

Align Technology has opened its 2022 Research Award Program, in which $375,000 will be awarded to university faculty for scientific and technological research initiatives to advance patient care in the fields of orthodontics and dentistry. The program has funded about $2.4 million in research since its inception in 2010.

Eligible applicants for dental research awards include full- and part-time faculty involved in dental or scientific research at universities at which Invisalign treatment or the iTero scanner is available.

All applications are reviewed by an independent academic committee that forwards its recommendations to Align Technology for final selection. Research proposals and completed applications must be received by 5 p.m. (PST) March 4; award recipients will be notified by June 6.
