SUPPORT THE K.R.I. SHAVED HEAD CHALLENGE
A hair razing initiative in support of epilepsy research.
The person who raises the most by 9:00AM March 26 wins/shaves. If the total raised by both Chaim and Dene is above $5k by March 26 (Purple Day, Krembil Research Institute) then both will be shaved at the event.
The donated hair will go to help create wigs for those that need it.
My name is Dene Ringuette and I have had the opportunity to work and collaborate in the Epilepsy Community for the last 8 years. During my PhD, I worked out of Dr. Peter L. Carlen’s lab developing imaging devices for pre-clinical epilepsy research and investigated the limitations seizure intervention. I am currently working at Krembil Research Institute as a post-doctoral research fellow focusing on treatments for comorbidities associated with diverse neurobiological disorders including epilepsy.
I hope to raise awareness of for people with Epilepsy. I have worked directly with people suffering from Epilepsy in a research capacity and know the toll it takes on their lives.
My Colleague Chaim Katz who works in Taufik A. Valiante’s Lab is also raising money for his head shaving for epilepsy research.
