Chem Eng Student Working Toward a PhD in Chemical Engineering and an MD from the School of Medicine

Hannah DiesThe Department of Chemical Engineering is honoured that our PhD student, Hannah Dies, is featured on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science website.
Hannah is currently working toward her PhD in Chemical Engineering as well as her MD from the School of Medicine.  Her research on lab-on-a-chip-based diagnostics could revolutionize medical care around the world and her academic abilities have earned her a very prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Hannah expects to complete her graduate studies in 2021 where an abundance of opportunties will await her.

Chemical Engineering Post-Doctoral Fellow Featured by CMC Microsystems

Congratulations to Post Doctoral Fellow Reza Nosrati for his feature in CMC Microsystems "Success Stories". Read on for a brief preview of the story. 

"For infertile couples, the expense, duration and low success rates of assisted reproduction can make the process a physical and emotional ordeal.

Reza Nosrati, a postdoctoral researcher at Queen’s University aims to change that. Using microfluidics and advanced microscopy, he and his colleagues are developing simple but functional technologies for analysing and selecting sperm, and ultimately improving fertilization rates.

Much of his work has focused on male infertility. As a PhD candidate working under microfluidics expert Professor David Sinton at University of Toronto, one of his earliest projects was to design a simple, easy-to-use microfluidic device that would select sperm by “racing” the cells in microchannels. Winners of this race, when examined, showed 80% higher DNA integrity, making them potentially more successful in commercialized reproduction."
