Quentin Pittman obtained his BA&Sc at ULethbridge and a PhD at UCalgary, then trained as a postdoctoral fellow at McGill and the Salk Institute. In 1980, he returned to Calgary, where he has received nearly 40 years of external, competitive salary awards as well as continuous research program support from the MRC/CIHR and other agencies. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Canadian Academy of Health Sciences and American Physiological Society and has given a number of named lectures to various societies and institutions. He has held committee and executive positions in a number of national and international scientific societies and has been a reviewing/assoc editor for several scientific journals. Dr. Pittman’s work, which has collectively been cited over 16,000 times, has been focused in 3 major areas: 1. Innate immunity and the brain; 2. Cellular actions of peptides, mediators and neurotransmitters; 3. Early life programming of the brain and febrile seizures. Aside from neuroscience, his other passions include skiing, hiking and cycling, but he can be distracted by a good Scotch.
