Researchers awarded Garner Killam Fellowships at UBC

UBC chemist Prof. Chris Orvig and evolutionary biologist Prof. Dolph Schulter have been awarded 2011 Killam Research Fellowships, among Canada’s most distinguished research awards. The funded research will focus on the preclinical discovery and testing of compounds that will slow, halt or reverse the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s Disease, and investigate the changes that occur during evolution in three-spined stickleback fish in British Columbia’s coastal lakes.
