Psychology MSc Student Laura Katz.
Department of Psychology - March 25, 2011
Psychology MSc student Laura Katz is the 2011 recipient of the Canadian Pain Society Trainee Research Interchange Program (TRIP) Award.
The Canadian Pain Society TRIP award was established to foster pain research, capacity, education, collaboration and networking within Canada's national scientific pain community. There is only one recipient of the research interchange program award in clinical science across Canada.
Laura commented on the honour saying, "It will help to expand my knowledge of pain research and pain communication methodologies as well as increase my training capacity and productivity".
Dr MJL Sullivan of McGill adds, "I am extremely pleased to have Laura join us for this great research exchange between our labs. Collaborations like this one have significant positive impact on students in both labs."
Results from this exchange will be submitted for presentation at the Canadian Pain Society as well as for manuscript submission to Pain Research and Management.
Katz is a member of the Department of Psychology's Pain Research Lab, which is directed by Dr Dean Tripp. "This award is indeed an honour for Laura and our lab", says Tripp. "By granting this award to Laura, the Canadian Pain Society has provided its generous approval of Laura's Research Line and its implications to Canadians suffering from pain. I am thrilled that Laura will represent the Queen's Clinical Psychology Graduate Program while she is immersed in this unique research exchange opportunity at McGill."
