Health researcher recognized for outstanding contributions
Queen’s University professor Anne Croy (Biomedical and Molecular Sciences) was recently inducted into the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS).
Dr. Croy is a world-leader in reproductive sciences. She has had a major impact on the understanding of maternal and infant health through her studies of changes in the immune and cardiovascular systems during pregnancy. In particular, her ground-breaking description of uterine Natural Killer (uNK) cells and their functions.
“I look forward with great anticipation to broad opportunities provided by this honour,” says Dr. Croy. “It enables me to work on behalf of the Canadian population, with leaders in all aspects of health care, to assess urgent issues and to provide unbiased information for the development of public policy.”
CAHS fellows are individuals who have a history of outstanding performance in the academic health sciences in Canada and who are recognized by their peers nationally and internationally for their contributions to the field.
Election to fellowship in the academy is considered one of the highest honours for individuals in the Canadian health sciences community.
The CAHS works in partnership with the Royal Society of Canada and the Canadian Academy of Engineering to form the three member academies of the Council of Canadian Academies.
