Jonathan Cooper's Biography

Jonathan Cooper, The Wolfson Chair of Bioengineering, University of Glasgow

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).

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.
