Andre Schroeder Research Prize awarded

One of the most prestigious awards in dentistry, the Andre Schroeder Research Prize, was presented at the World Symposium of the International Team for Implantology (ITI) in Geneva, Switzerland.


Beat Spalinger, President and CEO of Straumann, presented the award to Dr Maria Retzepi, a specialist periodontist and clinical lecturer at the University College London Eastman Dental Institute. Dr Retzepi is commended for her work on 'The Effect of Experimental Diabetes on Guided Bone Regeneration'. In particular, she has investigated the impact of uncontrolled and controlled diabetes on the histological events and on the gene profiles expressed by cells involved in the healing process following guided bone regeneration. Dr Retzepi's work showed that although diabetes compromises the initial stages of bone healing, guided bone regeneration can provide an environment that is conducive for significant, even though delayed, formation of new bone. First presented in 1992, the coveted Prize - which is worth CHF 20,000 - serves to promote new scientific findings in oral implantology and related fields. Sponsored by Straumann, the Andre Schroeder Prize furthers illustrates the company's commitment in the field of research and development, where it ranks among the leading contributors in the industry.
