Krista Filomeno from Dr. Ian Dixon’s laboratory, is one of this year’s recipients of the Nick Shepel Travel Award.
“The Nick Shepel Student Travel Award was established by the Division of Neurodegenerative Disorders, St. Boniface Hospital Research to honor Nick Shepel who was an outstanding researcher, friend and leader. Nick was a true inspiration to his lab partners and brought fire, humor, and a desire to always do better. His insistence to always try better will have a permanent effect on his lab mates. Nick led by example and taught that detailed preparation and execution of experiments ensured reliable results.”
This year’s recipients will receive up to $650.00 CDN each, to be used for reimbursement of eligible travel expenses as identified in their applications.
