TCNLab members know that co-PI Lisa Saksida is a powerhouse, but what an accomplishment to be recognized in the 2020 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award!
“Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry professor Lisa Saksida and nine Western alumnae have been named recipients of the 2020 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award.
The awards are presented annually by the Women’s Executive Network (WXN), a national member-based organization propelling and celebrating the advancement of women at all levels, in all sectors, and of all ages.
“In a difficult year, we’ve been inspired by Canada’s highest achieving women who unite those around them and help us all rise above our challenges,” said Sherri Stevens, owner and CEO of WXN. “These powerful women continue to lead the way, which is why it’s important to celebrate their achievements.”
Saksida, a co-director at BrainsCAN and a scientist at Robarts Research Institute, was recognized in the science and technology category. Her achievements include co-inventing a touchscreen-based system for testing learning, memory and attention in mouse models of brain disease. The innovation aids her team’s work to develop and deliver evidence-based assessments and interventions for the diagnosis and treatment of brain disorders.”
