It is my immense pleasure to congratulate Dr. F. Yuan for having been selected as the Ryerson Research Chair (RRC). The RRC program provides outstanding researchers at Ryerson, both the recognition of their present accomplishments and the opportunity to significantly extend their future research activities and accomplishments. Individuals selected as a RRC will be provided with support over a period of up to two years that will enable them to focus their energies, during the award period, primarily on their research activities.

This award, without any doubt, will further enhance his highly successful research in the Microelectronics Circuits and Sytems area, and will continue to produce high quality undergraduates, graduates, and research associates for academic and high-technology industries.

This is the second RRC in the Department, Dr. B. Wu was appointed as a RRC in Power Engineering in 2004. I wish the RRCs all the success, and also best wishes for many more RRCs in the Department.
