3. Research Resources

Following is a list of resources that may be helpful in conducting research:

AADR. The objectives of AADR are to advance research and increase knowledge for the improvement of oral health, support and represent the research community, and facilitate the communication and application of research findings. See AADR’s Journal of Dental Research.

ADA. ADA’s Web site contains information on survey research on dentistry, lists of dental organizations, and other items of potential interest.

ADEA. From ADEA’s Web site, click on “Federal Grants” to view funding information supported by the Association of Health Research and Quality, CDC, the Food and Drug Administration, HRSA, and the National Institutes of Health, as well as A How to Guide to Developing and Writing HHS Grants.

CDC. CDC’s Web site provides a link to CDC-sponsored prevention research centers. These are extramural centers that strive to increase knowledge about preventing and controlling chronic disease. Centers are housed within schools of public health, medicine, or osteopathy.

Community-Based Partnerships in Research. This discussion list is a venue to post questions and receive responses from individuals involved in community-linked research. The list also contains archives of previously posted questions and answers, along with discussions that might be helpful to program staff considering participating in research activities.

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH). CCPH’s Web site describes resources for technical assistance; lists upcoming conferences; and provides an e-news service, materials from the Web conference Community-Based Participatory Research: A Systematic Review of the Literature and Implications, and access to grant notices in the newsletter, Partnership Matters. From the Web site home page, click on “Research” to view a series of bulleted topics related to research, including reports, presentations, peer-reviewed journal articles, electronic discussion lists, and Web links.

NIDCR. NIDCR’s Web site provides information about funding opportunities and grant application and review procedures. See also information on NIDCR’s five Centers for Research to Reduce Oral Health Disparities.
