Abstract:

This report reviews the research and mentoring career of Richard B. Stein (1940–). In 1962, he completed a B.S. degree in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and thereafter an M.A. (1964), Ph.D. (1966), and postdoctoral training (1966–68) at the University of Oxford, UK. He subsequently assumed a faculty position at the University of Alberta (Canada), where he is currently an active researcher and mentor. To this point in 2004, Stein has trained and collaborated closely with over 160 scientists, largely neuroscientists and biomedical engineers, from 27 countries. He and his former trainees and collaborators have made important contributions on topics that span the cellular-to-behavioral spectrum of movement and rehabilitation–prosthetics neuroscience. His mentors, trainees, and collaborators include scientists whose countries of origin are: Australia, 2; Austria, 1; Belgium, 1; Bulgaria, 1; Canada, 64; China, 6; Denmark, 1; Germany, 1; Great Britain, 16; Hong Kong, 4; India, 5; Iraq, 2; Italy, 2; Japan, 10; Kenya, 1; New Zealand, 4; Pakistan, 1; Palestine, 1; Poland, 1; Romania, 1; South Africa, 1; Sri Lanka, 1; The Netherlands, 1; Turkey, 1; Uruguay, 1; USA, 21; and Yugoslavia, 6. In all instances, Stein's research collaborations and mentoring have advanced the careers of his trainees and junior collaborators, a well-deserved and important compliment to a stellar movement neuroscientist.Key words: movement neuroscience, rehabilitation neuroscience, prosthetics.

Ce rapport passe en revue les recherches et la carrière de mentor de Richard B. Stein (1940-). Le professeur Stein a obtenu un baccalauréat en physique aux États-Unis, au Massachusetts Institute of Technology, en 1962, puis une maîtrise (1964) et un doctorat à l'université d'Oxford, au Royaume-Uni, où il a aussi effectué une formation postdoctorale (1966-1968). Il s'est par la suite joint au corps professoral de l'Université de l'Alberta (Canada) où il est à l'heure actuelle chercheur et mentor. À ce jour, Richard Stein a formé plus de 160 scientifiques de 27 pays, en grande partie des neuroscientifiques et des ingénieurs biomédicaux, et collaboré étroitement avec eux. Lui-même et ses anciens étudiants et collaborateurs ont fait des contributions importantes sur des sujets couvrant tout l'éventail, de cellulaire à comportemental, de la neuroscience du mouvement et de la réhabilitation et de la prosthétique. Ses mentors, ses étudiants et ses collaborateurs sont des scientifiques ayant comme pays d'origine l'Afrique du Sud (1), l'Allemagne (1), l'Australie (2), l'Autriche (1), la Belgique (1), la Bulgarie (1), le Canada (64), la Chine (6), le Danemark (1), les États-Unis (21), la Grande-Bretagne (16), Hong Kong (4), l'Inde (5), l'Irak (2), l'Italie (2), le Japon (10), le Kenya (1), la Nouvelle-Zélande (4), le Pakistan (1), la Palestine (1), les Pays-Bas (1), la Pologne (1), la Roumanie (1), le Sri Lanka (1), la Turquie (1), l'Uruguay (1) et la Yougoslavie (6). Dans tous les cas, le mentorat et les collaborations à la recherche de M. Stein ont fait progresser la carrière de ses étudiants et de ses jeunes collaborateurs, un compliment important et bien mérité pour un excellent neuroscientifique du mouvement.Mots clés : neuroscience du mouvement, neuroscience de la réhabilitation, prosthétique.
