Each year, Parkinson Society Canada (PSC) recognizes the achievements of a distinguished Parkinson’s neuroscientist of international reputation with the Donald Calne Lectureship. The honoree delivers a speech on the current state of Parkinson’s research, and often highlights their area of expertise.
Established in 2002, the award honours Dr. Donald Calne for his contributions to the Canadian Parkinson’s community as Professor of Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia and for his work as chair and long-time member of PSC’s Scientific Advisory Board. Selection and announcement of the 2014 recipient will take place in March.
Members of the international Parkinson’s community, including scientists, medical professionals, people with Parkinson’s and their families are invited to attend. Save the date and check back online in March for an invitation to join us on May 26 for the 2014 lecture in Montreal, Quebec.
