The Fellowship of the Chemical Institute of Canada was created as a senior class of membership to recognize outstanding merit by those who have made, or who are clearly in the course of making, a sustained and major contribution to the science or to the profession of chemistry, chemical engineering, or chemical technology.

Here are the distinguished CIC members who have been named Fellows in 2009 by the Fellowship Selection Committee.

Le titre de << Fellow >> de l'Institut de chimie du Cariada a ete cree afin de reconnaitre une contribution exceptionnelle que les membres ont faite, ou sont visiblement en train de falte, a la chimie, au genie chimique ou a la technologie chimique, tant sur le plan scientifique que professionnel. Voici les membres distingues de l'ICC choisis par le Comite de selection pour recevoir le titre de << Fellow >> en 2009.

David Cramb, FCIC

University of Calgary

Department of Chemistry

David Cramb was trained as a small molecule spectroscopist. In his independent research program at the University of Calgary, he has developed a highly original research program in the area of biophysical chemistry. The medical aspects of his research program attract a large number of undergraduates and graduates with diverse backgrounds. Cramb is director of the newly instituted Nanoscience program at the University of Calgary. He has played a leadership role in the Physical/Theoretical Chemistry Division including Division chair and Program Chair for the Division at the Calgary 2000 CSC Conference.

Lois Erichson, FCIC

NOVA Chemicals Corporation

Lois Erichson has held many leader positions within NOVA Chemicals Corporation. As leader of the manufacturing infrastructure area at the NOVA Chemicals Joffre site, Erichson ensures that the Joffre site has reliable utility and infrastructure services. As a member of APEGGA, she has been an advocate and was an early supporter of the practice of stamping and signing engineering documents within NOVA Chemicals. She saw this as a vital component of engineering quality and control, a key element of Process Safety Management. Erichson was president of CSChE and is a strong supporter of the Process Safety Management Division. (PSM), insisting that the graduates and junior engineers from NOVA become knowledgeable about PSM and its role in industry. Erichson has always sought to build a connection between chemical engineering and Responsible Care[R] in the chemical industry through health, safety, environment, and risk management programs and research.

Deryn Fogg, FCIC

University of Ottawa, Ottawa

Department of Chemistry

Deryn Fogg's contributions to catalyst design and mechanism in olefin metathesis and tandem catalysis, and her pioneering work on applying MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry to the characterization of reactive organometallic complexes, have been recognized with a number of prestigious awards, including a recent NSERC Accelerator grant. Eogg has taken a leadership role within University of Ottawa Center for Catalysis Research and Innovation and on the executive of the Division of Inorganic Chemistry (DIC). As DIC Chair, she established the Inorganic Chemistry Exchange program to enhance recruitment of talented undergraduates into research. Since 2000, she has chaired the "Bacon and Eggheads" series of science breakfast lectures for parliamentarians, a program of the Partnership Group for Science and Engineering (PAGSE), aimed at reinforcing federal commitment to a dynamic and ambitious research culture in Canada.

Andrew Hart, FCIC

Bantrel Inc.

As manager of engineering, Andrew Hart grew the engineering team at Bantrel from approximately 100 people to well over 1,000, helping to establish Bantrel as one of the leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies in Cariada and North America. He played a major role in securing Bantrel's ISO 9001 registration, the first such registration for a Canadian EPC company. As president of the CSChE in 2002-2003, he began the Society's focus on increasing industrial participation in and interaction with the Society.

Pierre Harvey, FCIC

Universite de Sherbrooke

Departement de chimie

Pierre Harvey has done a great deal to promote research at all levels through Quebec and Canada. He has been in charge of the Colloque annuel des etudiantes et etudiants de 1er cycle en chimie for 14 years as well as a member of the Sherbrooke CIC Local Section executive since 1990. He is also founder and organizer of the Symposium annuel de chimie inorganique du Quebec (SACIQ). Harvey is well known in Canada and internationally for his work in photophysics, bio-inspired organometallic oligomers and polycners. Last year, he received the Herzberg Awards of the Canadian Society for Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy, Adrien-Pouliot prize from the Association francophone pour le savoir, and a Chaire d'excellence from the Agence nationale de la Recherche.

Robert H. Lipson, FCIC

The University of Western Ontario

Department of Chemistry

Rob Lipson's field of interest is laser spectroscopy. In more recent years, he has expanded his research activities to include technique development for mass spectrometry and the application of optical lithography to the fabrication of photonic band gap materials. As chair of the Chemistry Department at The University of Western Ontario Lipson led the reform of their undergraduate curriculum under the universities' New Academic Choices initiative. Lipson has played a strong role in the Canadian chemical community and is currently senior editor of the Canadian Journal of Chemistry.

Graeme Norval, FCIC

University of Toronto

Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry

Graeme Norval is principal of GWN Chemical Consulting Inc., providing services to smaller chemical manufacturers and distributors in Canada and the United States, focusing on chlor-alkali and sulphur-based families of chemicals. His work at the University of Toronto focuses on design and he has developed the course material for a new 3rd year course that present the methodology and background for chemical process design. He has been involved in the CSChE as co-program chair for the 2005 Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering conference, a member of the Catalysis Division executive and as conference director on the CSChE Board.

Warren Piers, FCIC

University of Calgary

Department of Chemistry

Warren Piers is regarded as Canada's most outstanding organometallic chemist in his (mid-career) age group, winning a number of highly prestigious awards including a Steacie Fellowship and being elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Piers has been involved in the Inorganic Chemistry Division for many years. He has also participated on several editorial advisor boards for chemical journals and is currently inorganic section editor for the Canadian Journal of Chemistry.

Adrian Schwan, FCIC

University of Guelph

Department of Chemistry

Adrian Schwan maintains an active, well recognized research program in organosulfur and heteratom-based synthetic chemistry. He has played a strong role in growing the Journal of Sulfur Chemistry since becoming its editor in 2004. He has contributed to graduate education in chemistry through his directorship of the Guelph Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry. He is now chair of the department of chemistry at the University of Guelph.

Shiping Zhu, FCIC

McMaster University

Department of Chemical Engineering

Shiping Zhu is a world leading polymer reaction engineering expert. He has made significant contributions towards understanding and developing of advanced polymerization technologies and establishing polymer structure-property relationships. He has trained 50 HQP and published 200 refereed journal papers.
