Queen’s researchers are changing the world.
Research is a core component of the mission of Queen’s University. A member of the U15, a group of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities, Queen’s ranks highly in terms of research funding and research intensity amongst universities nationally.
Our commitment to research excellence is evident in the many exceptional national and international accolades awarded to our researchers. Recently, Queen’s Professor Art McDonald was the co-recipient of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics.
This excellence, found across disciplines – from health care, the environment, materials, energy, law, economics, culture, and many others – attracts the best students, the best faculty, and the best collaborators from local and global communities, other institutions, government, and industry. Through our diverse programs, we promote social innovation, foster creative expression, and explore how societies work best. And it’s this culture of excellence that has made Queen’s one of Canada’s leading research universities.
