2005 Award for Basic Research in Biological Mineralization

Baltimore, Maryland...The 2005 Award for Basic Research in Biological Mineralization will be presented today by the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) to Dr. Mary MacDougall, Associate Dean for Research for the Dental School, Interim Chair of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, and Professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School. The award, which recognizes outstanding research that has made significant contributions to the field of biological mineralization, will be presented during the Opening Ceremonies of the IADR's 83rd General Session.

Dr. earned her PhD in Craniofacial Biology at the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry and her BA in Biochemistry at the University of California at San Diego. She was the recipient of National Institute of Dental Research Fellowships during both her pre-doctoral and post-doctoral studies. In 1986, she joined the faculty at USC School of Dentistry as a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology. In 1993, she joined the faculty at UTHSCSA, in 1998 she was promoted to Professor with tenure, and in 1999 became the Dental School's first Associate Dean for Research. Dr. MacDougall's research centers on the molecular mechanisms associated with tooth formation, tissue-specific cytodifferentiation, extracellular matrix formation, tooth regeneration, and related human genetic dental diseases. Her research in craniofacial genetics and biomimetics has been funded continuously since 1985 by the NIH/NIDCR.

Currently, she is serving as President-elect of the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) and director of a $5.5 million NIDCR program project grant investigating the molecular basis of tooth-specific gene regulation. In 2001, Dr. MacDougall received the IADR Distinguished Scientist Pulp Biology Research Award, and in 2003, the National AADR Student Research Group Mentor of the Year Award.
