Gregory Steinberg, professor, Department of Medicine, has been named to the Royal Society of Canada's College of New Scholars.

A professor of medicine is among three McMaster scientists named to the Royal Society of Canada's College of New Scholars, a national group that recognizes the country's emerging academic leaders.

Gregory Steinberg is a professor of medicine in the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, as well as Canada Research Chair in Metabolism, Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes and co-director of MAC-Obesity (Metabolism and Childhood Obesity Research Program). He is one of 91 members named to the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, which is Canada's first national system of multidisciplinary recognition for the next generation of intellectuals.

"It is of vital importance to the country and to McMaster that we invest in and support faculty members who are emerging as leaders in their fields," says President Patrick Deane. "Being selected to join the College of New Scholars is a significant accomplishment and testament to the expertise, knowledge and abilities of these McMaster faculty members."

Sarah Brophy, a professor of English and Cultural Studies in the Faculty of Humanities, and Catherine Connelly, associate professor in Human Resources and Management in the DeGroote School of Business, were also named to the College.

The three professors will join the College at a ceremony in Quebec City this November. Earlier this month, the Royal Society of Canada elected two other McMaster faculty members as Fellows. Eileen Schuller and Shiping Zhu will be honoured at the same Quebec City event later this fall.
