Dr. James Carmichael awarded the Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship


Congratulations to James Carmichael, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Sylvain Williams' lab, on being awarded the Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship, for his project entitled "From Space to Memory Under Pathological Tau." This is one of five research projects funded by the Alzheimer’s Association and Brain Canada to develop preliminary data and apply knowledge to the fields of Alzheimer’s and all dementias. These five Canadian-led teams are advancing our understanding of Alzheimer's disease, helping to identify new treatment strategies, providing information to improve care for people with dementia, and furthering our knowledge of brain health and disease prevention through the Alzheimer’s Association International Research Grant Program.

“This funding allows researchers to engage at the international level and contribute to research on Alzheimer’s disease and dementias. Brain Canada is proud to partner on programs that reward excellent research around the globe and lead to advances for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementias and their families,” says Dr. Viviane Poupon, President, and CEO of Brain Canada. “The IRGP projects align with our mission to better understand the brain in health and in illness and their learnings can be applied to a range of brain disorders and diseases amplifying the impact of this investment.”

Congratulations again!
