Congratulations to IMS Masters student Mikaeel Valli on being awarded the Frederick Banting and Charles Best CGS Scholarship.

The prestigious CGS Program was established in 2003 by the Government of Canada, with scholarships being awarded through competition by the three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC). The objective of the CGS M Program is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies.

Mikaeel is currently completing his Master’s at the University of Toronto’s Institute of Medical Science with a specialization in neuroscience. He is working with Dr. Antonio Strafella and his lab using neuroimaging techniques to ultimately better understand the underlying pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease.
