Three Brain Repair Team Leaders Named International Research Scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
NeuroScience Canada would like to congratulate all three of our Brain Repair Program™ team leaders--Dr. Freda Miller, Dr. Michael Salter and Dr. Yu Tian Wang-- who were named International Research Scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). These are among the most competitive and prestigious research awards in all of the medical sciences, and only eighteen Canadians received the honour this year. We regard this news as confirmation of the rigorous procedures and hard work of our Science Advisory Council and our International Science Advisory Council, who designed the Brain Repair Program and evaluated the applications. Each scientist will receive a $500,000 grant over five years to support his or her research.
