A University of Sheffield academic has received one of the highest awards by the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), for his work on clinical and translational dentistry research.
Professor Martin Thornhill, from the University of Sheffield, has been named as the 2021 recipient of the Distinguished Scientist in Pharmacology, Therapeutics and Toxicology Research award by the International Association for Dental Research.
The award recognises Professor Thornhill’s outstanding and sustained peer-reviewed research that has contributed to our knowledge of the mechanisms, efficacy and safety of drugs used in dentistry.
Over his career, Professor Thornhill has conducted research studies covering the full basic laboratory science through to clinical trials. This work has resulted in 156 peer-reviewed papers, 21 books and book chapters and 315 presentations.
The IADR has recognised him for his key research work in linking clinical and scientific research in dental and medical subject areas which has helped to stimulate new research in oral medicine.
This is the second time Professor Thornhill has been recognised by the IADR, after previously receiving the Distinguished Scientist Award in Oral Medicine and Pathology in 2015.
Congratulations Professor Thornhill
