(PRESS RELEASE) WATERLOO, ONTARIO — Dr. Lyndon Jones, director of the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) and professor at the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Waterloo, has been named a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) Class of 2021.

Founded in 1882, the RSC comprises the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences, and The College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. The organization recognizes excellence, advises the government and other entities, and promotes a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada and with other national academies around the world.

Dr. Jones is among 89 new fellows across Canada elected by their peers for outstanding scholarly, scientific, and artistic achievements. He is one of three University of Waterloo researchers to be awarded this elite distinction.

“I am extremely honored to be admitted to this long-standing scholarly organization,” said Dr. Jones. “The RSC challenges its members to make significant contributions of knowledge, understanding, and insight through engagement with society and I look forward to furthering its mandate in any way I can.”

“This year, the Royal Society of Canada welcomes an outstanding cohort of artists, scholars and scientists, all of whom have excelled in their respective disciplines and are a real credit to Canada,” said RSC President Jeremy McNeil.

He has been awarded over 30 national and international awards.
