Two FHS Graduate Students Receive Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarships
Yining Chen and Kyle Vader, two graduate students in the Queen's Faculty of Health Sciences, have received Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarships Doctoral Awards to support their research and education. Chen, an MD/PhD student focusing on neuroscience, has received funding for a project titled "Enhancing motor recovery in a non-human primate model of chronic stroke by inhibiting pro-death neuronal signaling." Vader, an incoming PhD student in the School of Rehabilitation Therapy, is being funded to work on "The effect of a decatastrophizing cognitive restructuring intervention on sensitivity to physical activity among adults with knee osteoarthritis: a randomized experimentally controlled trial."
The Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarships Doctoral Awards program provides special recognition and support to students who are pursuing a doctoral degree in a health-related field in Canada. They provide $105,000 of funding over three years.
Please congratulate them both on their accomplishments.
