Posted on


Lassonde Professors James Elder, Richard Wildes, and Dan Zhang are York Research Chairs.

Recognized for their excellence in research and innovative projects, Lassonde Professors were appointed into the YRC program alongside eight other emerging researchers from York University.

The newly appointed YRCs belong to the fifth cohort of elected researchers since the establishment of the program in 2015.

The YRC program's goals are to build research recognition and capacity, with excellence in research, scholarship and associated creative activity serving as selection criteria. 

This program is designed to recognize excellence that is already in existence at York and to support the programs of the University’s most active researchers.
