Michael Tymianski, Canada Research Chair in Translational Stroke Research, will deliver the 2012 Hnatyshyn Lecture at the Canadian Stroke Congress in Calgary. The lecture is the featured plenary presentation at the Congress.
Dr. Tymianski, a respected Toronto neurosurgeon and researcher, was selected by the Congress Program Committee.
“Mike has made a tremendous contribution towards advancing new therapies for stroke patients in Canada,” said CSN Executive Director Katie Lafferty. “His work in taking discoveries from the bench to clinical trials is really quite remarkable. He bridges the gap between research and clinical care.
“Mike has an excellent story to tell – and one that should be shared with the entire stroke community.”
The lecture is named in honour of Ray Hnatyshyn, who served as Governor General of Canada from 1990 to 1995 and was a founding member of the CSN’s Board of Directors.
The lecture is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary.
