When headhunters first contacted Rémi Quirion years ago about the new position of Quebec’s chief scientist, he initially took a pass. Quirion warmed to the challenge and took on the role in 2011 – a position he has held ever since. His mandate includes advising Quebec’s minister of the economy and innovation about research and science in the province. On May 2 in Montreal, at a ceremony hosted by McGill, Quirion will be inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. The CMHF noted Quirion is “one of the world’s most frequently cited neuroscientists recognized for his pivotal role in advancing our knowledge in neuroscience and mental health.”
