Eight researchers at the University of Toronto have been named fellows of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences – one of the highest honours for the country’s health sciences community.
The academy brings together Canada’s leading health scientists and scholars to address critical health challenges facing Canadians. The fellows are recognized for their leadership, creativity and commitment to advancing academic health science and are drawn from a wide range of fields, from fundamental science to social science and population health.
“The University of Toronto is proud of these eight scholars, all of whom have achieved national and international peer recognition for their meaningful contributions to the health sciences,” says Vivek Goel, vice-president of research and innovation.
“Their internationally recognized leadership and their election to the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences reflect the university’s strength in these fields that helps place it as one of the top research universities in the world.”
