Top of the Killam’s

PhD student Sarah Kraeutner was recognized as the top Killam Predoctoral award winner at last nights Killam Awards Reception, receiving the Dr. George Cooper Killam Prize. Sarah is the inaugural recipient of this award, which is named after Dr. George Cooper, a longstanding member and head of the Killam Board of Trustees. Killam awards are the most prestigious scholarship awarded by the University, recognizing the very best in graduate and postgraduate education. Dalhousie is one of only four universities in Canada to award Killam Scholarships and Prizes. Funding from the Killam scholarship provides support for Sarah as she pursues her doctoral work, which focuses on better understanding how imagined movements can be used to aid in the acquisition of motor skills and how they might be used in rehabilitation to help with recovery of movement after brain injury, such as stroke. Congratulations Sarah on a well-deserved award!
