Dr. Harley Hotchkiss Leaves $1-Million Legacy Gift To University of Lethbridge

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - The late Dr. Harley Hotchkiss has left a $1-million legacy gift to the University of Lethbridge to support brain research.

The gift will advance important work at the U of L's Canadian Centre for Behavioral Neuroscience in areas such as brain injury, Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, early brain development disorders and stroke.

Chair Dr. Robert Sutherland points out they're facing a significant shortfall over the next while as the government is cutting back on funding for research universities. He says "if we're going to carry on at the level we have been or increase our efforts in research on brain diseases, we're going to need to find alternative sources of funding and so this comes at a really important time for us."

Hotchkiss is well known for the many contributions he made in the area of brain research. The University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute was named in his honour.
