Emily King has received the Geoffrey Blee Neuroscience Honours Prize.

Part of Emily’s PhD project is supported by a Neurotrauma Research Program (NRP) grant titled ‘Targeting the axon initial segment for the treatment of stroke’. The Chief Investigator is Dr Tang, Emily is an Associate Investigator along with A/Professor Rodger, Professor John Reynolds (University of Otago), Dr Hakuei Fujiyama (Murdoch University) and Dr Jamie Beros (postdoctoral researcher in the Brain Plasticity Research group).  The grant is funded by NRP in conjunction with the Department of Health. The Department of Health partners with Neurotrauma Research Program (NRP) aiming at reducing impact of brain trauma and spinal cord injuries.

This project will use a new protocol for non-invasive brain stimulation to treat the damage caused to brain cells after stroke.
