O’Brien Fellow Earns Banting Fellowship

lynne-gouliquerDr. Lynne Gouliquer is a first for St. Thomas University and for New Brunswick with her recent award of a Social Science and Humanities Research Council Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship, one of 23 in Canada, is a professional triumph for Gouliquer and recognition of the work taking place on aging at St. Thomas University.

Gouliquer is studying the resiliency of the aging population, particularly people over the age of 90, a group she refers to as the ‘elder elders.’  “I think there are many things we can learn from them. I will be doing a qualitative study, and I believe St. Thomas is a great fit for this research.”
