Announcement: Gray Centre for Mobility and Activity launches new initiatives

Since opening its doors a year ago, the Gray Centre for Mobility and Activity, a partnership between the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, St. Joseph’s Health Care London’s Parkwood Institute, and the Faculty of Health Sciences, has been innovating rehabilitation treatment for patients in the London community and surrounding area.

On October 21, the scientists, therapists and physicians responsible for these innovations are making their introduction to the broader community. Through virtual presentations, they will share how their diverse expertise and collaborations have improved rehabilitation outcomes for patients with mobility issues.

In an effort to continue to support research translation and innovation at the Centre, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and the Faculty of Health Sciences have established the William and Lynne Gray Research Chair in Mobility and Activity. The inaugural Chair is Siobhan Schabrun, PhD, currently a principal research scientist with Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and Director of the Centre for Pain Impact at the University of New South Wales. Schabrun will commence her appointment in February 2022.

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and the Faculty of Health Sciences are also pleased to announce a partnership to facilitate unique learning opportunities within the Centre, including placements for learners from various health disciplines.
