Branco Weiss Fellow Jacquelyn Cragg received one of the two L’Oreal-UNESCO for Women in Science Excellence in Research Fellowships that were awarded in Canada this year. Every year, two fellowships, which each come with a $20,000 cash prize, are awarded to support major postdoctoral research projects undertaken by young Canadians at a pivotal time in their career. They reward excellence and allow top scientists, selected by a panel of experts, to further their research.

Dr. Jacquelyn Cragg is a Branco Weiss Fellow since 2016. Working at both the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and the University of British Columbia (ICORD) in Vancouver, Canada, she examines how the current management of acute spinal cord injury can be tailored to maximize neurological and functional returns.
