The Giddon award recognises a single research paper published or accepted for publication between January 2012 and December 2013.

The award was made possible by an annual contribution from Donald B Giddon DMD, PhD, who is a founder and former President of the Behavioural, Epidemiological and Health Services Research Group of the IADR.

Professor Harris will pick up the award in South Africa at the IADR conference in June.
