Queen’s welcomes new partnership with Lakeridge Health on Chair in Palliative Care Research

Last Thursday, I hosted our annual reception to recognize members of our faculty who had recently been promoted. It is always a pleasure to see so many familiar faces and celebrate some important career milestones, but this reception was made even more special by the faculty’s good fortune in naming several new chairs over the last year. That night, it was a thrill for me to introduce Dr. José Pereira as the inaugural Dr. Gillian Gilchrist Chair in Palliative Care Research to our community for the first time.

Placing Patients at the Centre

One of the great joys of these last eight years as dean has been working alongside one of Canada’s most well-known and talented scientists, Dr. Roger Deeley. Roger’s successes are many, but importantly, a very major one just opened its doors this morning – the W. J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research.

Three Queen’s University professors were granted the honour today of being elected to the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), one of the highest honours for Canadian academics in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
