Dr. Novera Herbert Spector

Dr. Novera Herbert Spector, a retired NINDS health scientist administrator in the Division of Fundamental Neurosciences, was recently awarded a certificate of appreciation from the International Society of Neuroimmuno-modulation (ISN) in recognition of his significant contributions to neuroimmuno-modulation research, his efforts to promote the field, and his leadership in the founding of ISN and tenure as its first president. Spector coined the term neuroimmuno-modulation, which refers to interactions between the nervous and immune systems. Also in his honor, ISN established the Novera Herbert Spector Leadership Award, to be given at subsequent congresses to an investigator who has made significant contributions.
