A huge congratulations goes to Professor Emeritus and Nobel Laureate Art McDonald of the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics & Astronomy from Queen's University for being inducted as a foreign associate of the National Academy of Sciences at the 154th annual meeting on April 29th, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Having conducted my graduate work at Caltech, served as a professor at Princeton and collaborated extensively with U.S. scientists throughout my research career, I am honoured to have been elected to The National Academy of Sciences. At this important time in the dialogue on the importance of scientific research, I am proud to be granted membership in this highly respected group.”

Induction into the National Academy is amongst the highest honours that one can receive, and is a testament to the significance of Dr. McDonald’s research. This award is further recognition of the groundbreaking research conducted at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory by Dr. McDonald and his collaborators. On behalf of the entire university community, I would like to extend him my most sincere congratulations.
—Daniel Woolf, Queen's Principal
