Every year, the Government of Canada invests approximately $265 million through the Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Program to attract and retain some of the world’s foremost academic talent. On May 3, 2018, three Arts and Science researchers were appointed to Tier 1 and Tier 2 CRC roles:
Guojun Liu (Chemistry) was renewed at the Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Materials Science.
Gabor Fichtinger (Computing) was newly appointed as the Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Computer Integrated Surgery.
Kyla S. Tienhaara (Australian National University) was newly appointed as the Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Economy and Environment.
“The Canada Research Chairs Program continues to nurture exciting research being conducted at institutions across the country,” says John Fisher, Interim Vice-Principal (Research). “Here at Queen’s we are very proud to have not only two of our current Chairs renewed to their roles, but to also have two faculty members appointed as brand new chair holders. Their leadership within their respective academic disciplines represents the research excellence our university strives to achieve.” (Read More)
