Nov. 13, 2013 College News - A third-year MCW medical school student was one of the first two winners of the Bennett Hiner Research Award. The award is supported by the Wisconsin Neurology Society Bennett Hiner Memorial Fund, which was established to honor the memory of Bradley Hiner's son, who died unexpectedly in his sleep in 2011 at the age of 26.  

Bradley Hiner, MD, is Professor of Neurology, Director of the Neurosciences Ambulatory Clinics, and Neurologic Director of the Deep Brain Stimulation Program. His son, Bennett, was a medical student at USC School of Medicine.

Mitch Daun, third-year MCW medical school student, won the award for his project, Repeatability of Independent Component Analysis Applied to Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast MRI in Newly Diagnosed and Long Term Flow-up Brain Tumor Patients.  Aadhavie Sridharan, a fourth-year medical school student at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, received the award for her project on the effect of caloric restriction on aging and the brain in rhesus monkeys. Her dissertation work combined neurohistologic and advanced brain imaging techniques to examine the effect of caloric restriction on aging brain pathology and morphology.
