J. Fraser Mustard
My professional life has not always been focused on early human development. After receiving my MD from the University of Toronto, I began a research career at the University of Cambridge, focusing on the role of blood platelets in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. I pursued this work when I returned to the University of Toronto and continued at McMaster University, where I recruited many international scientists who helped to develop the university’s problem-based program of medical education. It has since been adopted as a model around the world.a
