The Bennett Hiner Research Award, supported by the Bennett Hiner Memorial Fund at the Wisconsin Neurological Society, is awarded each year to a medical student enrolled and in good standing at a Wisconsin medical school.
The award commemorates Bennett Carroll Hiner, son of Dr. Bradley Hiner and Susan Carroll. Bennett, who found his place in medicine and took great joy in helping others, died unexpectedly at the age of 26 while enrolled at the University of Southern California School of Medicine. Award winners are selected based on a combination of their leadership in medical school and research in the neurosciences.This year’s recipient is Brett Fulleylove-Krause from the Medical College of Wisconsin. His abstract is titled: Increasing NAD Levels in an iPSC model of Parkinson’s Disease.
This year’s award will be presented October 20 at the WNS Annual Conference in Elkhart Lake - be sure to attend in order to hear more about the great work being researched! Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the WNS website to submit an application for consideration next year.
