Description: Fulbright visiting scholar lecture: Brain Resilience Training for Huntington's Disease.

Dr. Melanie Cheung (Ngâti Rangitihi, Te Arawa), a Mâori native and Fulbright New Zealand scholar, is developing a brain resilience training program for Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s disease is a progressive brain disorder affecting an estimated 3 to 7 per 100,000 people of European ancestry. Dr. Cheung is committed to exploring both Indigenous and Western scientific paradigms to help people with neurodegenerative diseases. Her work integrates experimental neurobiology, bioethics, tikanga (ceremony/customary) and Mâtauranga Mâori (Maori traditional knowledge). The Outreach Lecturing Fund allows Fulbright Visiting Scholars, like Dr. Melanie Cheung, to travel across the country to share their specific research interests, speak on the history and culture of their home countries, and exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations.

Sponsored by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and Fogarty International Center
