The Graham Boeckh Foundation presents the third annual Dr. Samarthji Lal award for mental health research to Z. Jeff Daskalakis, M.D., Ph.D., FRCP(C), Associate Professor of Psychiatry at University of Toronto and Director of the Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

The Dr. Samarthji Lal award recognizes a Canadian researcher in the area of psychiatry, with a focus on major mental disorders, who is mid-career and making an outstanding contribution to the field. An independent review panel made up of internationally renowned researchers determined that Dr. Daskalakis’ pioneering research in electromagnetic resonance therapy made him an eminently deserving recipient of the award.

The Graham Boeckh Foundation and the Dr. Sam Lal award marketing partners – the Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction, and the Canadian College of Neuropsycho-pharmacology congratulate Dr. Z. Jeff Daskalakis!
