Dr. Morrison just received word that he received the New Investigator in Alzheimer's Disease Award from the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation/American Federation of Aging Research for his project using EEG to predict the transition from normal aging to Alzheimer's disease. The two year award will fund a continuation of the project to evaluate the cognitive abilities of older adults and people diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairments for longitudinal tracking.
Dr. Morrison had a successful replacement of his right hip and joined the ranks of the bionic. He's already back to work thanks to the surgical prowess of Dr. David Beigler of Illinois Bone and Joint. Dr. Beigler performed the relatively rare anterior hip replacement procedure. As Dr. Beigler loves to say "its hard on me but easy on you!". And it fact it was, Dr. Morrison was cane free in just under three weeks. He can't wait to get back on his bike!
To celebrate the end of an exciting and successful year in the CAN LAB, we enjoyed spending time together at Dr. Morrison's house for a BBQ. It was a nice spring evening and Dr. Morrison fired up the grill on his back porch. There was delicious food and excellent conversation. I'm already looking forward to our next CAN LAB gathering.

As a token of their appreciation for Dr. Morrison's excellent mentorship, the CAN LAB undergraduates surprised Dr. Morrison with our new lab mascot: da Vinici! Of course, da Vinici is wearing a very fancy, personalized helmet...
Our CAN LAB grad students made dessert. Arie made his famous brownies...and Val brought a beautiful fruit salad. YUM!
