Khaled Youssef received two prestigious scholarships for his doctoral studies with Professor Pouya Rezai

Khaled Youssef, a PhD student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at York University, has recently received two prestigious scholarships to continue his doctoral research at ACµTE under the supervision of Professor Pouya Rezai. The Ontario Trillium Scholarship is a competitive provincial award for attracting top ranked international students to Ontario for their PhD studies. The Carswell Scholarship is an award from Lassonde School of Engineering to incoming PhD students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements. Congratulations, Khaled !

Professor Pouya Rezai Has Received Funding from NSERC and OCE to Partner with Dairy Quality Inc. for Developing a Bacterial Biosensor

Professor Pouya Rezai from the Department of Mechanical Engineering has received funding from NSERC and OCE to partner with Dairy Quality Inc on a project that aims to develop a portable  biosensor for detection of microbial pathogens in milk and dairy products. A microfluidic device for sample processing and separation of target pathogens from milk will be developed in phase I of this project. The microchip will then be integrated with an iOS-based microscopy and target detection tool in phase II. The academic and industrial team aim to bring this technology to market in 2018.
