2005 Behavioral Sciences & Health Services Research Award

Baltimore, Maryland...Dr. Hannu Hausen, University of Oulu, Finland, has been named the 2005 recipient of the Behavioral Sciences & Health Services Research Award, presented by the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening today for its 83rd General Session.

Dr. Hausen is an international leader in the field of oral diseases risk assessment and dental disease prevention. He obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Dentistry in 1965 and his Licentiate of Dentistry in 1968, both from the University of Turku (Finland); his Dr. of Dentistry degree (DOdont.) from the University of Kuopio (Finland) in 1983; and his MPH degree from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, USA) in 1986.

Dr. Hausen was appointed as the first professor of Community Dentistry in Finland in 1985, when the chair was established at the University of Kuopio.

He has inspired numerous junior faculty members in Finland, and continues to be an inspiration for his colleagues in Nordic countries, as well as in several developing countries. Many of Dr. Hausen's colleagues have gone on to publish well-regarded research in the area of caries risk assessment and prevention.
