The Bud Tarrson Research Award was created to support and encourage periodontal research in oral plastic surgery.
The AAP Foundation's E. Bud Tarrson Research Award in Oral Plastic Surgery was created to support and encourage periodontal research in oral plastic surgery. This is a $1,000 award for the best paper on clinical oral plastic surgery published in a peer-reviewed journal during the year prior to award selection.
At least one of the paper's researchers must be a periodontist or a periodontal postgraduate student. A preliminary list of candidates will be prepared from a review of all literature in the field published during the year prior to award selection.
No application required.
The Foundation Board makes the selection from a list of finalists recommended by a three-person committee appointed by the AAP Foundation president. The award, along with a plaque or certificate, will be presented at the AAP Annual Meeting.
Bud Tarrson supported the specialty in numerous ways, including his role as a member of the AAP Foundation Board of Directors.

“I feel better and better each day that I teach. I consider myself a privileged individual for having a job that I love in a wonderful institution. At the same time, having the ability to positively influence the careers and lives of the students with whom I interact makes it feel even better. My own personal experiences as a student helped me understand the importance of mentorship, therefore, I try my best to inspire and support pre- and post-doctoral students alike. I think my progression over the past two years has been tremendous in part because of the peace of mind afforded by the AAP Foundation Teaching Fellowship I was awarded in 2011; I can focus on being the best teacher and researcher I can be without worrying about finances,” says Gustavo Avila-Ortiz, DDS, MS, PhD.
