Dr. Beth Irving and Dr. Lyndon Jones have each been appointed the title of University Research Chair at the School of Optometry & Vision Science.
The honour of University Research Chair is a 7 year term which recognizes their impressive scholarly contributions at the University of Waterloo. The designation of University Research Chair was established by the university to recognize exceptional achievement and pre-eminence in a particular field of knowledge. A faculty member with this title will receive additional resources in form of time or funding to enhance their research. The School is thrilled to have their research efforts acknowledged in this way. Congratulations Drs. Irving and Jones!
