Three Queen's professors and respected researchers have been formally inducted as fellows of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS).

Roger Deeley (Pathology and Molecular Medicine), Jacalyn Duffin (Medicine, Philosophy, History, Nursing, Education), and Elizabeth Eisenhauer (Oncology) were chosen based on their demonstrated leadership, creativity, competence and commitment to the health sciences.

Dr. Deeley is the Vice-Dean of Research for the Faculty of Health Sciences, Director of the Queen's Cancer Research Institute, and a professor of pathology & molecular medicine, oncology, and biomedical & molecular sciences. His research focus on multidrug resistance proteins (MRP) has been widely recognized as a major contribution to understanding the causes of resistance to cancer chemotherapy.

"I'm very honoured to have been elected as a Fellow of the Academy and I look forward to participating in the activities of the Academy in its support and promotion of health research in Canada," says Dr. Deeley.
