UCalgary scholar awarded $1M for spinal cord injury research


University of Calgary Associate Professor Aaron Phillips has received $1M to advance his work on reducing damage and supporting recovery after spinal cord injuries. The funds are provided through the second annual Hopewell Maximizing Innovation in Neuroscience Discovery (MIND) Prize, an initiative that supports cutting-edge research at UCalgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute and was created through funding from philanthropist Sanders Lee. “The MIND Prize is a tremendous boost that will help our lab to conduct transformative research in medicine,” said Phillips.
