Following my Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University, I conducted post-doctoral research in molecular endocrinology at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL (USA). My first independent position was as a Staff Scientist (Assistant Professor) at the Population Council’s Center for Biomedical Research at The Rockefeller University. I then moved my lab to McGill in April 2006. In addition to being a Full Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at McGill, I am an associate member in the Departments of Physiology, Anatomy and Cell Biology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology, and am a member of the Integrated Program in Neuroscience.
