Women scientists and clinicians are creators and changemakers who are expanding the boundaries of human knowledge. The Neuro has launched Neuro XXceptional – an exciting new year-long video series featuring women who tell us what drove them to become scientists and clinicians, and what they love about their work. At the Neuro, these exceptional professionals are improving the lives of patients, helping us understand how the brain works and how to treat neurological disease.
“Science needs diversity because it drives innovation,” says Dr. Guy Rouleau, Director of The Neuro. “Inventions and breakthroughs come from looking at problems differently. At The Neuro, women scientists are advancing research and clinical care on all fronts with originality and determination.”
Join us as we delve into the inspiring world of these women – nurses, doctors, neuroscientists and students – who are on the front-line of advancing treatments for diseases including Parkinson’s, ALS and stroke, and exploring the mechanics of memory, music, decision-making and language in the brain.
