The Tony Proudfoot Training Fellowship in ALS research at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital supports promising young scientists at the master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral level who wish to undertake research projects that specifically focus on ALS.
This year, the winner of the Tony Proudfoot Fellowship is Dr. Audrey Dangoumau. Audrey recently completed her PhD thesis under the supervision of Pr.
