A message from Dr. Jan Friedman, Acting Executive Director, CFRI

Three CFRI cluster directors or co-directors have recently taken on more senior administrative positions at the University (Dr. Geoff Hammond), hospital (Dr. Erik Skarsgard) or CFRI (Dr. Stuart Turvey). We have, therefore, restructured the leadership of these three clusters, and I am pleased to announce the following appointments:

  • Dr. Mark Ansermino has agreed to serve as Director of Innovations in Acute Care & Technology.
  • Dr. Wendy Robinson has agreed to serve as Co-Director of Reproduction & Healthy Pregnancy; Dr. Peter von Dadelszen will continue as the other co-director of this cluster.
  • Dr. Rusung Tan has agreed to serve as Director of Immunity in Health & Disease.

I am very grateful to Geoff, Erik and Stuart for their excellent service as cluster heads. I also wish to thank Mark, Wendy and Ru for taking on these important roles for CFRI.
