Dr Michael Proulx - spark of recognition
8 June 2012
A researcher has been chosen to carry the Olympic flame in recognition of his work on blindness. Dr Michael Proulx, lecturer in cognitive psychology from the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, will run with the flame in August in the day prior to the start of the Paralympic Games. He will be one of 580 people to hold the flame on the journey between Stoke Mandeville, the birthplace of the Paralympic Games, and the Olympic stadium in London.
