2023 recipient

Michael Kolios

Faculty of Science Department of Physics

Dr. Kolios is a distinguished research scholar who contributed to the understanding of how nanobubbles interact with ultrasound, co-leading a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional team with Dr. Agata Exner from Case Western Reserve University. Their 6-year collaboration helped solve the mystery of how nanobubbles can be used as ultrasound contrast agents and has led to new applications in ultrasound imaging and therapy being tested in hospitals in Canada and the USA. This joint work has led to 15 journal publications, several grants funded by NSERC, the CIHR and the NIH, and contributed to the training of over 30 highly qualified personnel.
