Candidate:

Mr. Neuroscience Entrepreneur

About Me:

Howdy! So I’m a soon to be minted PhD in neuroscience from the Université de Montréal. While my PhD was largely successful, I have mild academia PTSD. I can’t think of a better cure than another 1-2 year degree. Kidding aside, I developed a prototype for what could be the world’s first blood based test for psychiatry. I now seek a business acumen.
