ST. PAUL‚ Minn. – (August 22, 2017) – The American Dental Association (ADA), in partnership with 3M Oral Care, has created the 3M Innovative Research Fellowship – a program designed to encourage and engage researchers who are innovating and leading the way to advance dental materials science. The focus of the program is particularly to support future pathways and methods in dental research.
“Our entire organization is oriented toward bringing meaningful scientific applications to everyday life,” said Jim Ingebrand, vice president, Oral Care Solutions Divison of 3M “This fellowship will help advance the best possible ideas to improve dental research, and thus, improve the oral care experience for dental professionals and patients, alike.”

Additionally, they’ll be honored at a private ADA event and have the opportunity to present their research via a continuing education program. The researcher may also have the opportunity to share their work and interact with 3M scientists at its headquarters in St. Paul, MN or at a dental research industry event.
Ingebrand continued, “3M has hundreds of the finest scientists in the world and this individual will have the opportunity to interact with key individuals to further their research.”
