Robert L. Carroll, frsc, fls
BSc (Michigan State University), MA, PhD (Harvard University)
Carroll, an evolutionary biologist, has integrated knowledge of fossil and living vertebrates with earth history and evolution to gain a better understanding of the patterns and processes reflected in the history of life. He recently received the Miller Medal of the Royal Society of Canada and an honorary membership in the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. Science Magazine wrote, "Our next generation of scientists would do well to train themselves as Carroll has done in order to fulfill his vision of what integrative vertebrate biology can become."

Shew-Kuey (Tommy) Mark
BSc, MSc, PhD (McGill University)
W.C. Macdonald Professor of Physics
Mark is regarded as one of the "iron men" of our university, with a long track record of success in experimental nuclear physics. Early in his career, Mark studied nuclear structure and nuclear reaction mechanisms through beta decay excitations using McGill's 100MeV cyclotron proton beam. Later, as director of the Foster Radiation Laboratory, he steered McGill's nuclear research to a new focus on unstable nuclei. He later moved to the new field of relativistic heavy-ions. In 2002, he was named the W.C. Macdonald Professor of Physics.
BA (McGill University), MA (Cornell University), PhD (McGill University)
Steinberg is a highly regarded academic whose career success results from two different, yet complementary, facets. As an expert on foreign policy in the Department of Political Science, she focused on the characteristics of decision-makers. She then earned a diploma in psychoanalysis, which further enhanced her research. She brought together the two disciplines by offering the first graduate seminar of the psychological dimensions of international relations. She was an affiliate with the Department of Psychiatry as well as a private practitioner.
Radoslav Zuk, fraic, frsa
BArch (McGill University), MArch (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Zuk joined McGill's School of Architecture in 1966. His commitment to teaching and the quality of his courses was recognized with the Faculty of Engineering's Ida and Samuel Fromson Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2001. A practicing architect, Zuk's buildings are known for their power and serenity. His work continues to draw international acclaim and has been recognized with many professional distinctions, including Canada's highest architectural design award, the Governor General's Medal for Architecture in 1986.
