A record seven Queen’s professors were named fellows of the Royal Society of Canada at its annual general meeting over the weekend.

In addition to Queen’s newest fellows, Principal Daniel Woolf and Vice-Principal (Research) Steven Liss were on hand for the Nov. 16th ceremony.

Fellowship in the RSC is one of the highest recognitions for Canadian academics in the arts, humanities, and the social and natural sciences. The seven newest fellows from Queen's come from across four of the university’s faculties—Arts and Science, Engineering, Health Sciences, and Law. Their research touches on a wide range of important issues and topics, such as the needs of vulnerable children and youth involved in the justice system, the diagnosis and treatment of hemophilia, and the global diffusion of Renaissance and Baroque Art.

The election of Queen’s seven new fellows of the RSC was first announced in September.
