    As a Fulbright Canada Mitacs Global Link awardee Imani will assist with research at the University of Montreal on a computational neuroscience project to examine how social norms and hierarchy impact brain function and processes. “I wanted to gain research experience, and the fact that the research would be international was a major draw for me. I'm excited to explore an area of interest and connect with experts in the field,” says Imani. With collaboration being a cornerstone of working in a scientific field, the opportunity to work on a global team will be especially fruitful.

    Tyler Pugeda

    Tyler will work on a research project based at Charité Hospital in Berlin that investigates a possible mechanism for Alzheimer's disease. “While there are drugs that alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's, it is frustrating that there are no approved treatments to slow the progression of the disease. However, my Fulbright work could lead to the first groundbreaking therapy that slows the progression of Alzheimer's. It could also extend the use of this research to treat other neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's,” says Tyler.
