Christine Wilson, Physics & Astronomy, has been awarded a prestigious Killam Fellowship, one of six scholars to receive the award this year. The Fellowship supports full teaching and administrative release to allow researchers to pursue independent research. Wilson will be studying dense gas and starformation in galaxies to answer important questions about how stars develop. Deborah Cook, Faculty of Health Sciences, also received a Killam Fellowship this year. Both researchers are also Tier 1 Canada Research Chairs and Distinguished University Professors.
