CMC Microsystems Announces Winner of 2020 Douglas R. Colton Medal for Research Excellence

February 1, 2021: CMC Microsystems is proud to announce that Dr. Kyle Briggs of the University of Ottawa has been awarded the 2020 Douglas R. Colton Medal for Research Excellence. Dr. Briggs co-invented the controlled breakdown method of fabricating solid-state nanopores. These tiny holes are approximately the same size as DNA or typical protein molecules, and allow scientists to study single biomolecules, one at a time. This innovation allows nanopores to be fabricated for a fraction of the cost of any method that preceded it and allows for integration into previously impossible devices, opening up new potential applications that were believed to be inaccessible.
