Book to launch October 2017!

Dr. Ellen Hickey has completed the second edition of a book on dementia management, Dementia: Person centered assessment and intervention, with co-editor Michelle Bourgeois. While there is an emphasis on communication and the role of the speech-language pathologist, the book offers a broad review of interventions from a variety of disciplines. Evidence-based assessment and intervention approaches that promote meaningful life engagement for persons with dementia are described. The book is being published by Taylor & Francis, a division of Routledge, and is expected to be in print in late October 2017. 

Recruiting students for research

Dr. Jian Wang is recruiting students (both master thesis and PhD) to join his research team. The selected student(s) will obtain a stipend from one of his research grants. The amount of the stipend will be based upon the student’s experience and academic performance as well as availability of funding. It is expected that a PhD student will be supported for 50-80% of their total costs from the grant. The selected students will have higher chance of funding success from the Tri-council and other sources.

Dr. Jian Wang’s research is funded by grants from NSERC and CIHR and covers 3 major areas: (1) cochlear gene therapy against cell death induced by noise, ototoxic drugs and aging, (2) physiology and noise induced damage of ribbon synapses between sensory cells of hearing and primary auditory neurons, and (3) the impact of hearing loss on cognitive function.
