"The CRC is a great opportunity to come back to Canada and focus on science. I appreciate the faith that McGill and particularly the Department of Psychiatry have in me.  I have now been here for just over a year and it has been great; the CRC  allowed for the development of my genetics and stem cell program.  Looking forward to carrying on the work I have started with great colleagues at the Douglas and McGill communities." -- Dr. Carl Ernst

Congratulations Carl!
