Dr. Judy Illes, Dr. B Lynn Beattie, and Chad Day receive the Alvin J. Thompson Award (NWABR)

A warm congratulations to Dr. Judy Illes, who recently received the Alvin J. Thompson Award from the Board of the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR)! This award is shared with Dr. B. Lynn Beattie, founder and former head of the AD and Related Disorders Clinic at UBC, and Chad Day, President of the Tahltan First Nation.
This honour was given in recognition of the way that Neuroethics Canada came together to form a research partnership on early onset Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) with the Tahltan First Nation that “met the highest ideals of ethical research and the advancement of trust”.
Congratulations to all involved in this meaningful research!
