A Celebration of Blood

Guest blog by Dr. David Lillicrap, Professor, Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine

As a hematologist, of course I’m biased, but I would propose that there are many reasons to celebrate the importance and distinct nature of blood. At Queen’s, we unashamedly impart this message to our medical students through Jackie Duffin’s annual 1st year lecture entitled “Why is Blood Special?”.

Remembering Dr. Ron Wigle

“Laugh a lot. A good sense of humour cures almost all of life’s ills”

On Wednesday September 21st, the Queen’s and Kingston communities lost a very special individual. Dr. Ron Wigle passed away with his family by his side at the age of 74.

Celebrating five years in the School of Medicine building

This September marks five years since the opening of the School of Medicine building. This new home for the School of Medicine was made possible by tremendous generosity from our alumni, friends and donors. Leveraging investments from both the Federal and Provincial Governments, our alumni and friends contributed over $19 million to build a state-of-the-art home for the School of Medicine to expand teaching and student learning facilities all under one roof.
