We can proudly announce that Adams Lab member Tavia Evans has received the Incentive Grant for Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math 2021 from NWO (The Dutch Research Council).
“I am thrilled to receive this prestigious award and am very thankful for NWO for supporting women in a field which is historically lacking in female representation.”
The current lack of representation of non-European individuals in research into neurodegeneration is striking. This is the reasoning behind establishing the UNITED consortium, which now includes over 82 global partner sites across 6 continents and over 115,000 individuals.’ Evans’s long-term ambition is to investigate detailed neuroimaging of neurodegeneration in currently under represented populations to increase health equity and unravel further insights into the neurodegenerating brain.
“The grant allows me to build off all of the hard work that’s gone into setting up the UNITED consortium to thoroughly investigate previously unanswered questions into neuroimaging of neurodegeneration in global populations. The grant further allows me continue to establish myself within academia in the Netherlands and continue to collaborate with academics and clinicians worldwide.” – Tavia
