Mark Platt's Biography

Mark Platt, Senior Lecturer

Mark Platt is a Senior Lecturer within the Centre for Analytical Science at the Department of Chemistry, Loughborough University. His career allowed him to move through several disciplines from electrochemistry (PhD, University of Manchester), BioMEMS and Microfluidic devices (Penn State and Cambridge University) before exploring Aptamer technologies and Point of care Devices for the detection of Virus’s (University of Manchester and University College Dublin). Prior to his post at Loughborough Mark was a Marie Curie Fellow developing nanoparticle based assays for biomarkers. His research aims to synthesis, assemble and characterise nanomaterials leading to new analytical technologies. From fundamental research into fluidic reactors and the creation of bespoke particle analytics, to transformative nanopore sensors. Current research projects include the monitoring of heavy metals within waste streams, screening blood samples for disease and developing rapid bioassays to screen for toxins.
