MUHC research choice bows out

There’s been a lowish-level story about the MUHC’s chosen new research head being resisted by people here after a mass petition based on an article in Science. Now he has withdrawn from the offer. Dr. Constantine Stratakis had held important jobs in the U.S., but there were “allegations of sex and age discrimination by Stratakis against female researchers and neglect of research on women’s health issues.” The MUHC is looking for candidates with a less troubled history.
