University of Calgary: Weiss Wins Gairdner

Samuel Weiss, PhD, director of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the University of Calgary, received a Gairdner International Award on Thursday, Oct. 23 at the Royal Ontario Museum. The Gairdner International Award is one of the world�s most prestigious medical science awards. Historically, one in four Gairdner awardees has gone on to win a Nobel Prize. Weiss� explorations into the brain have changed the fields of developmental neurobiology and neural regeneration. In 1992, he discovered the existence of neural stem cells in the adult brain. That groundbreaking discovery has lead scientists around the world to investigate how to stimulate those cells to heal the brain. It is anticipated that Weiss� work will lead to new treatments for people with devastating brain diseases and spinal cord injuries. His current research is focusing on regeneration of brain cells in multiple sclerosis and stroke.
