Chemical Engineering Post-Doctoral Fellow Recieves Colton Medal for Research Excellence

Congratulations goes out to Post Doctoral Fellow Reza Nosrati, the first Queen’s researcher to receive the Colton Medal for Research Excellence.

Established in 1994 in recognition of the founding President and CEO of CMC Microsystems, the Douglas R. Colton Medal recognizes excellence in research leading to new understanding and novel developments in microsystems and related technologies.

The prestigious award was presented to Dr. Nosrati for his research in the fluid mechanics of male infertility treatment. His work which has been praised for its simplicity, functionality, and for its commercial potential, holds promise for applications in assisted reproduction, cell biology and sensing, and early stage cancer detection. Patent applications have been filed for at least three of his inventions. 

Dr. Nosrati defended his PhD thesis in March 2016 at the University of Toronto, which focused on microfluidics for male infertility treatment. He has published more than 40 papers with 14 of them residing in high-profile scientific journals like Nature Communications. His works, including his groundbreaking discovery of the 2D slither swimming mode of sperm, have been highlighted several times in renowned journals such as Nature Reviews Urology and featured in news sources worldwide including LA Timesand Daily Mail.
