Earlier this month, Dr. Brenda Milner, an active researcher at the age of 95 at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University, was been awarded the 2014 Dan David Prize for her fundamental contributions to the science of memory and the brain.

Milner is remarkable for two reasons:

  1. She is one of the oldest active researchers in Canada
  2. She was one of the first female scientists in an institution dominated primarily by males

Congratulations Dr. Milner. We hope that you remain active for many years to come!

Below is some sage advice from the almost centenarian scientific wonder-woman.
