Canadian neurologist wins highest award as American Stroke Association honors five

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 2 One of North America's foremost neurologists and stroke researchers, Vladimir Hachinski, M.D., D.Sc., professor of neurology at the University of Western Ontario, London, Ont., Canada, is the recipient of the American Stroke Association's highest honor the Thomas Willis Award for 2005.

Hachinski will receive the award and deliver the prestigious Willis Lecture today at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference 2005 here in New Orleans.

Named for pioneer physician Thomas Willis (1621-1675), the award recognizes a senior investigator who has made major contributions to the understanding of stroke over a sustained period. Willis is credited with providing the first detailed descriptions of the brain stem, cerebellum and ventricles along with extensive hypotheses as to their functions.

In addition, John R. Marler, M.D. will receive the William M. Feinberg Award for Excellence in Clinical Stroke and Hermes A. Kontos, M.D., Ph.D., wins the Distinguished Scientist Award. Research awards will go to Hong Li, M.D., who is receiving the Mordecai Y.T. Globus New Investigator Award in Stroke and Shelagh Coutts, M.D., who wins the Robert G. Siekert New Investigator Award in Stroke.

An internationally recognized stroke investigator and innovator, Hachinski is the current editor-in-chief of Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association and a past chair of the stroke conference program committee. He is past Richard and Beryl Ivey Chair of the Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences at the University of Western Ontario.

Hachinski pioneered the development of acute stroke units providing specialized patient care; discovered the key role of the central lobe in the cardiac complications of stroke and developed the "ischemic score" that bears his name. In addition, he was the first recipient of Canada's Trillium Award for outstanding research achievement.
