Meet: Dr. David Munoz

David Munoz photo.jpgWhat’s your role with ONDRI?
I’m leading the neuropathology program based out of St. Michael’s Hospital.

Did you ever consider another profession?  
I did consider becoming a biologist or journalist but I’ve always been more interested in living things and the unique features of humans. I was actually trained as a neurologist before I went into neuropathology.

Meet: Brad Pugh

ONDRI is important to me because in some small way, I can contribute to this field.
