Brock chemist receives highest academic honour
Published on September 06 2013
Brock University chemist Tomas Hudlicky has been elected a fellow in Canada’s top academic body.
“Election to the academies of the Royal Society of Canada is the highest honour a scholar can achieve in the Arts, Humanities and Sciences,” the Royal Society of Canada said in a Sept. 6 statement announcing its fellowship winners for 2013.
The association notes that fellows are elected by their peers “in recognition of outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement.”
“I was obviously happy to hear the news,” says Hudlicky, who joins 83 other newly elected fellows. “It is a great honour.”
