We are committed to promoting the advancement of dementia research skills in junior faculty through the provision of training resources. Established with the generous support of the Chawla family, the Isadore & Margaret Mezey award will pay for travel expenses for three junior investigators associated with their participation in national or international conferences focusing on the latest discoveries in neurodegenerative research and clinical practices. Awardees have a keen interest in advancing their careers in the dementia field and use the award for participation in annual meetings associated with major brain-related associations or societies.
This year’s junior investigators receiving the Mezey Travel Award are:
Annalise Rahman-Filipiak, PhD of the University of Michigan who will travel to the International Neuropsychological Society Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado in February.
Bikash Sahoo, PhD of the University of Michigan who will travel to the International Symposium on Pathomechanisms of Amyloid Diseases in Miami, Florida in December.
