International Journal Honors Dr. Sean Liu for Best Article in 2010

Dr. Sean Liu, assistant professor of orthodontics, is one of Indiana University School of Dentistry's youngest faculty, and he has been with IUSD for only 2.5 years, but the global orthodontics community is already taking notice of him.

Dr. Liu was recently informed by the European Orthodontic Society that the editorial board of the European Journal of Orthodontics had chosen one of his articles for the 2010 Beni Solow Award, which is annually bestowed for the best article published by the journal in a calendar year. Dr. Liu was the winner for an article published in August 2010 titled “Continuous Forces Are More Effective Than Intermittent Forces in Expanding Sutures.” His two co-authors are orthodontic faculty from the Baylor College of Dentistry, where Dr. Liu received his PhD; and Kyungpook National University in Daegu, Korea.

The award, including a monetary sum of £2,500, was presented to Dr. Liu at the European Orthodontic Society Congress in Istanbul, Turkey, in June.

In addition to his studies at Baylor, Dr. Liu is a graduate of Taipei Medical University’s dental and orthodontics programs in Taiwan. His award-winning paper can be assessed by clicking on this link.
