Dr. Bernard Arulanandam, Dr. James Chambers, Dr. Neal Guentzel, Dr.Karl Klose, Dr. Robert Renthal, and Dr. Jieh-Juen Yu are recipients of the first annual Innovation Awards.
Meet Jossina Gonzalez. She's a young woman with a passion for neuroscience, and she graduates this month with a doctoral degree.
In 2004, Gonzalez was accepted into the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston to prepare for training as a physician. However, when the university learned she was unable to walk and generally weakened due to a debilitating neurological condition, the health science center revoked her admission, causing an uproar that landed in the laps of the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Office of Civil Rights in Washington, D.C.
