Charlotte Martial receives the Young Investigator Award from IBIA, Charlène Aubinet an honorable mention
Researcher in the Coma Science Group - GIGA Consciousness of the University of Liege, Charlotte Martial received the Young Investigator Award from the International Brain Injury Association for her research in the field of disconnected consciousness. Congratulations!
IBIA Young Investigator Award
The biennial Young Investigator Award recognizes excellence in brain injury research by an individual in training (graduate or medical school, residency, fellowship, or post-doc).
For the first time ever, the review committee recognized Honorable Mentions for this award and Charlène Aubinet (Coma Science Group too) received one of the two recognitions for her work.
Charlène Aubinet studies the links between consciousness and language in patients with extensive brain damage. Wishing to improve their care, she uses neuroimaging and develops new tools for language evaluation and rehabilitation. Her research allows to better detect the residual abilities of these patients in coma awakening, and thus to avoid a serious underestimation of their level of consciousness.
