Jonathan Cooper's Biography



Jonathan Cooper, Wolfson Professor and University Vice Principal, Glasgow University

Professor Jon Cooper holds The Wolfson Chair in Biomedical Engineering. He is an EPSRC Research Fellow and holds a European Research Council Advanced Programme Grant. His major research interests are in ultrasonics, microfluidics and medical diagnostics. He has a track record of spin-out and translation of devices into practice. In one example, he is developing, rapid, zero-cost “origami paper” diagnostics species-specific DNA sensors to identify the cause of infectious disease and inform treatment “in the field” in Asia, India and Africa for point of care testing of infectious diseases in humans and animals from blood, sperm and faecal samples. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK’s national academy of engineering) as well as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (Scotland’s National Academy of arts, humanities and sciences).

To better control the interaction between surface acoustic waves and microfluidics, we have introduced the use of frequency dependent periodic arrays known as phononic crystals. These can create interesting new liquid manipulations, e.g. on-chip centrigugation, cell lysis through shear, cell separation, liquid heating and atomization.
