Andrew Pruszynski, PhD, named Canada Research Chair

Robarts scientist Andrew Pruszynski, PhD, was named the Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Sensorimotor Neuroscience this month.

Pruszynski, who came to Robarts and Western University from Sweden, leverages expertise in robotics and neuroscience to understand the basic neural circuitry that underlies healthy and impaired movement – including reaching, grasping and object manipulation. This work will lead to better interventions and rehabilitation strategies following injuries and disease that compromise movement.
