Henry J.M. Barnett Scholarship Award 2001/2002 - Hill

Dr Michael Hill
University of Calgary
Each year the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC) honours Henry J.M. Barnett for his exceptional contributions to stroke research, education and patient care in Canada, by awarding a special research scholarship to a highly rated scholar working in the area of cerebrovascular research. The recipient is presented with an award valued at over $300,000 over five years. This year's recipient is Dr. Michael D. Hill of the University of Calgary.
While training with Dr. Alastair M. Buchan at the University of Calgary, Dr. Hill received a fellowship award through the HSFC/CIHR Health Research Partnership Fund. His research and his numerous publications have afforded cerebrovascular research with valuable data that includes diagnosis, therapy and prognostication in thrombolytic therapy in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Dr. Hill will continue to focus his research in stroke neurology and the development of multi-centre clinical therapeutic trials in acute stroke. His work may lead to improved outcomes for patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Research scholarships, such as the Barnett Scholarship Award, support new investigators in establishing their independent research careers. This award is supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and has been awarded to the highest rated applicant since 1997. Other recipients of this award include: Dr. Richard Frayne (2000/2001), Dr. David Steinman (1999/2000), Dr. Peter Chidiac (1998/1999) and Dr. Jerome Yager (1997/1998).
