With this issue of the spotlight, we would like to congratulate Dr. Brett Thombs who is the recipient of the 2014 Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Emergent Researchers. This award was created in 2013 to encourage and celebrate McGill’s most outstanding earl-career researchers, as well as to provide them with an advantage as they apply for external awards by adding a prestigious internal distinction to their list of accomplishments.
Dr. Karama is a McGill-trained general psychiatrist with research training in brain imaging and genetics. He received his PhD in Neuroscience from the Université de Montréal. He completed a 15-month postdoctoral fellowship at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute in Behavioral Genetics as well as a five-year postdoctoral fellowship in Brain Imaging at the Montreal Neurological Institute.
