In 2019 Dr Justin Garber, The University of Sydney, was awarded a three-year Postgraduate Scholarship fully funded by the Trish Foundation.
Dr Garber continues to make good progress. Some refinements to the original research proposal have been made, including focusing on the motor system of the brain and measuring damage of MS lesions. Dr Garber has presented his work at several national conferences and has published several manuscripts in scientific journals.
Dr Garber has been appointed Director of the MS Clinic and has taken up a Staff Specialist Neurologist position at Westmead Hospital. He therefore requested a part-time Scholarship, the final year being spread over two years concluding 31 December 2022. Dr Garber’s request was approved by the Foundation’s honorary Scientific Research Committee and honorary Board, the University being formally notified.
