Using cognitive theory and innovations in neuroscience to understand and improve mental wellbeing across the lifespan
MRC CBU’s Ajay Halai awarded an MRC Career Development Award (CDA)
Many congratulations to MRC CBU’s Ajay Halai who has been awarded an MRC Career Development Award (CDA), for his project ‘Developing a neuroscience-led basis for diagnosis, prognosis, management and therapy for aphasia post-stroke.’
A career development award is a personal award that aims to support individuals seeking to transition to independence through protected research time and an ambitious programme of research training and personal career development.
Ajay said: “I am shocked but thrilled to be awarded the MRC CDA Fellowship. After many failed applications, I finally managed to land one (note to others – keep trying and you can do it!). I want to thank Matt Lambon Ralph for his continued support as my mentor, my lab for helping me develop my research and my wife, Gina for all her love.”
