Gilman was selected for raising the Department of Neurology’s national standing by recruiting outstanding faculty and acquiring new research and training funds. He also was recognized for his own neurology research and for his status as an international leader in the field of neuro-imaging.

Lisa M. Curran, assistant professor of ecology and environmental biology and of biology, will receive the University’s 2001 Henry Russel Award prior to Gilman’s lecture. The award is given annually to young faculty members for scholarly achievement and promise.

Curran’s primary areas of scholarship involve the ecology of plant-animal interactions, climate influences on plant population dynamics, and the political economy and sustainability of tropical forest use. She has had major studies published in Ecological Monographs and the Journal of Natural History.
