Congratulations to Prof. Doris Buss and Prof. Sheryl Hamilton!

As Kim Matheson, Vice-President (Research and International) notes, these awards “are given to researchers who not only have excellent track records as individuals, but have contributed to the reputation and research activity at Carleton. The activities of our winners have a transformative effect on the university.”
