Creating space for transformative conversations
The Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy
2016 Recipient: Dr. Bernard Crespi, SFU Biological Sciences
The Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy was established at Simon Fraser University in 1993 to honor and encourage work that provokes and/or contributes to the understanding of controversy.
Evolutionary biologist, Dr. Bernard Crespi, is the recipient of the award this year. He's done some amazing research related to autism and schizophrenia, and how it relates to the parents' gene pool.
Crespi will be presented with the Sterling Prize at an award ceremony, after which, he will give a featured talk on his research: ‘Rethinking our understanding of human cognition, behavior, and mental illness’
