Brian Cunningham's Biography



Brian Cunningham, Donald Biggar Willett Professor in Engineering; Director of the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Brian T. Cunningham is the Willett Professor of Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he also serves as the Director of the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory. His research interests include biophotonics, bionanophotonics, micro/nanofabrication processes & materials, BioMEMS, lab-on-a-chip, microfluidics, biosensing, and applications in drug discovery, health diagnostics, mobile point-of-use detection systems, life science research, environmental monitoring, animal health, and food safety. Prof. Cunningham’s key technical contributions and achievements stem from his invention and application of nanostructured photonic surfaces that efficiently couple electromagnetic energy into biological analytes, enabling high signal-to-noise sensing of materials that include small molecules, nucleic acids, proteins, virus particles, cells, and tissues. He has made key foundational contributions to the application of mobile devices (such as smartphones) to point-of-use detection systems that provide equivalent capabilities to laboratory-based instruments. He is a Fellow of IEEE, OSA, AAAS, NAI, and AIMBE.

The strong electromagnetic coupling between plasmonic nanoparticles and photonic crystal surfaces is used as the basis for an ultrasensitive detection platform called “Activate Capture + Digital Counting” (AC+DC) that offers single step, isothermal, rapid, 100 aM, selective detection of protein and nucleic acid target molecules without wash steps or enzymatic amplification.  The talk will describe the operating principles of the AC+DC approach, provide representative examples for miRNA and protein biomarker detection, and describe applications for the technology for cancer genomic diagnostics.
