A short ceremony was held Thursday afternoon with longtime friend Bill Brady, speaking along with Robarts' scientists Ravi Menon and Stephen Ferguson. More tributes were planned for an evening event at the London Hunt Club. Robarts is more than halfway to its goal of raising $5 million for the Kathleen and Dr. Henry Barnett Chair in Stroke Research.
