Introduction: Mothers and others needed for healthy human development

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
