Grad students Karney-Grobe, Cammack receive 2018 Hope Center Awards

Each year, the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders recognizes investigators who are early in their training and whose work best fulfills the mission of the Hope Center: To improve the lives of people living with neurological disorders, through collaborative research that aims to discover fundamental mechanisms of neurodegeneration and repair, and translate that new understanding into cures and treatments.  

Winners are selected based on presentations at the Annual Hope Center Retreat.  The quality of the research and the presentations at this year’s retreat were truly outstanding. 

Congratulations to the 2018 Hope Center Award winners!
