The diseases and disorders that plague our society are complex and involve multiple systems including signaling pathways, cellular physiology and behavioral phenotypes. To better understand health and disease it is important to integrate these multiple levels of discourse, but one of the fundamental challenges of modern research is precisely linking a particular clinical disorder to a target receptor. My desire to overcome this gap was the catalyst for my double-training as a clinician and a bench researcher. I obtained my MD degree from Carol Davila University in Romania and my specialty training in Anesthesia from the University of Toronto. My research training consists of a PhD in Neuroscience from Laval University in Quebec City and a post-doctoral fellowship in Dr. Orser’s laboratory at the University of Toronto. My long-term career goal is to establish myself as an independent clinician-scientist in the field of Translational Neuroscience.
