Recognized as a world expert in cardiac anesthesia and postoperative care, perioperative blood management and evidence-based clinical practice, Cheng’s research activities have focused on resource utilization in fast track cardiac surgery, off-pump beating heart surgery and robotic cardiac surgery.

A faculty member since 1972, and current professor in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Kidder has served as the Associate Vice-President (Research) at Western for the last three years. He is also chair of the Developmental Biology Program at the Children’s Health Research Institute and a scientist at the Lawson Health Research Institute.

Russell Poole
 
English professor and former department chair Douglas Kneale knew when Russell Poole joined Western as a professor in Medieval Literature the university had acquired a superb colleague, an internationally recognized authority in his field, an astute and caring teacher in the classroom and an effective mentor in graduate supervision.
 
 
 
 
Poole’s contributions to scholarship have their primary focus in medieval studies, including Old and Middle English, Old Icelandic, medieval Latin, and Old Irish Language and Literature; Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian history; and the evolution of medieval scholarship.
