Dr. Kilgore Trout by Kurt Vonnegut

With faculty members engaged in a dynamic mix of health sciences, social sciences, humanities, natural sciences and library science disciplines, HEI boasts an exceptional depth and breadth of expertise and research clusters. Many faculty members are honoured with Chairs: Endowed Chairs and Canada Research Chairs, and several of our younger faculty members competed successfully for CIHR New Investigator and Heart and Stroke Foundation Career Investigator awards.

In HEI, faculty members "explicitly value collegiality and collaboration." They observe the Department is "both nurturing and challenging at once: nurturing because we place a premium on intense personal mentoring and we help the growth of people's careers; and challenging because we have great debates, interesting dialogue and a lot of cross-fertilization that helps enrich the research environment." In the late Dave Sackett's words, "We rejoice in one another's success."
