PHRI Senior Scientist Sonia Anand has been elected to become a Science Fellow in the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) – the highest academic honour in Canada. RSC writes in their 2022 new member list:

Sonia Anand is internationally recognized for her research on the cardiovascular health of women and populations of diverse ancestral origin. Over an esteemed career, the McMaster University professor of medicine and epidemiology, and senior scientist of the Population Health Research Institute, has earned a global reputation for prioritizing research into women’s health, impacting public policy and clinical practice, and developing new therapies that are benefitting high-risk vascular patients.

Twitter blew up in congratulations (at least in #medtwitter #cardiotwitter circles) for Anand’s honour, including long-time program manager of many of her population health studies, Dipika Desai:

Other PHRI researchers have become RSC Fellows:

  • 2018: PHRI Senior Scientist Guillaume Pare, who is also Director, CRLB-GMEL laboratory and biobank
  • 2005: PHRI Executive Director and Senior Scientist, Salim Yusuf

Along with Anand’s recognition in RSC, in the month of November 2022 alone, Salim Yusuf was named Best Scientist in Canada and #21 Best Scientist in the World; and PHRI Senior Scientists John Eikelboom and Stuart Connolly made the 2022 list of Highly Cited Researchers.
