Jonathan Cooper's Biography



Jonathan Cooper, Professor, Glasgow University

Professor Jon Cooper holds The Wolfson Chair in Biomedical Engineering and is Vice Principal at the University of Glasgow. He has published ca. 230 research papers (ISI SCI h = 45, orcid.org/0000-0002-2358-1050, http://www.researcherid.com/rid/E-9000-2010) with a further 18 books, book chapters and reviews. His major interest has been in medical diagnostics, and he has developed multiplexed point of care microfluidic devices which have been used both in the developed world, in the UK’s NHS (for sexually transmitted diseases) as well as those appropriate for resource limited countries (for malaria species). He is the founder of Mode-dX (www.modedx.com), producing home diagnostics for bowel cancer, now on sale in Boots The Chemist. The company was recently acquired by Mestar, China. Jon is an EPSRC Research Fellow and holds an ERC Advanced Programme Grant. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK’s national academy of engineering) as well as as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (Scotland’s national academy of arts, humanities and sciences).

We have recently developed a new platform, enabling us to obtain DNA based information of species, for the diagnosis of a range of infectious microbes, on a “low-cost” paper format using origami-paper folding to manipulate the sample and reagents.
