Students, staff, and faculty returning to campus must be vaccinated

Today (2021Aug12), Queen’s University announced that it will require all students, staff, and faculty returning to campus to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students, staff and faculty will need to be fully vaccinated or have a plan to do so, by Sept. 7.

Post-doctoral research fellowship position is available

A post-doctoral research fellowship position is available with a focus on von Willebrand disease (VWD) genomics. The position will have opportunities to work with an international collaborative group within which a large and unique VWD population has undergone whole genome sequencing.

Many questions remain about the genetic basis of the quantitative subtypes of VWD and this position will provide excellent resources to probe these questions in a comprehensive manner. The successful applicant will join an established research group with longstanding interests in the molecular science of hemostasis.

Interested candidates should contact Dr. David Lillicrap - david (dot) lillicrap (at) queensu (dot) ca – please attach your CV and a one paragraph text describing your background experience and interest in genomic science.

Dr. Andrea Grin, Service Chief of Anatomic Pathology

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to announce that starting August 1st, Dr. Andrea Grin will take over as Service Chief of Anatomic Pathology. To this role, Dr. Grin brings ten years of experience in both academic and community pathology, in clinical and translational research, and in educating undergraduates, medical students, and residents.  She is the undergraduate medical education lead for pathology at Queen's and also leads our GI pathology group. In addition, she serves as the regional pathology quality lead for Cancer Care Ontario and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and is working with Dr. Feilotter to vastly expand molecular cancer testing in our region.  We look forward to her leadership and the innovations she will bring to the service.

We also want to thank Dr. Timothy Childs for serving so capably in this role for the last 8 years. Dr. Childs has overseen a major expansion of anatomic pathology, with enhanced subspecialization in all areas and a sterling track record of quality and efficiency. He will remain on staff and will be called on for mentoring and special projects.
