Epilepsy is a common neurological condition in which the normal electrochemical activity of the brain is disrupted resulting in seizures. The disease affects 1-2% of the worldwide population. According to Epilepsy Australia, it is estimated that over 180,000 Australians are living with epilepsy, approximately 2% of Australians will experience the condition at some point in their lives and up to 5% may experience a one-off epileptic seizure. Epilepsy is controlled, but not cured, by medication, and around 30% of sufferers do not respond well to medication.
In 2008 “la Caixa” Foundation launched a scholarship programme to offer interdisciplinary training and research opportunities to outstanding young graduate students of any nationality to pursue a PhD project at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO).
The “la Caixa”/CNIO international PhD programme offers cross-disciplinary training in state-of-the-art basic and applied cancer research within an international scientific environment. Ten fully funded four year fellowships will be available in 2012. Candidates should have an excellent academic track record, a solid knowledge of English and previous research experience.
Students who gain a place in this new programme obtain full financial support during the four years of the scholarship.
Warren Grill was given a challenge in 2002. His soon-to-be business partner, Geoff Thrope, asked the Duke University Addy Professor of Biomedical Engineering: “You know, Warren, you’re doing a great job of being an academic biomedical engineer and publishing papers that end up in journals on a shelf. But is that sufficient?”
Since then, Grill (ENG’89) has risen to the challenge, translating fundamental research to several technologies with significant clinical impact. He and Thrope cofounded medical device start-up NDI Medical, LLC, a technology incubator that partners with academic researchers and supports in-house scientists and engineers in developing high-growth companies focused on innovative neurostimulation technologies. In recognition of his many innovations, Grill was named Neurotech Business ReportNeurotechnology Researcher of the Year in 2003, and in 2007 received the College of Engineering Distinguished Alumni Award for Service to the Profession.
