- Professor Jan Sapp, a professor of Biology and History at York University, with a focus on historical research on evolutionary biology.

- Professor Yiftach Fehige, assistant professor at St. Michael’s College and the Department of History and Philosophy of Science. His focus is on Christianity and science, thought experiments, revelation, and research ethics.
