Mark Bradley's Biography

Mark Bradley, Professor of Therapeutic Innovation, Precision Healthcare University Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London

Mark received his doctorate from the University of Oxford in 1989, followed by post-doctoral studies at Harvard and returning to the UK as a Royal Society University Research Fellow (University of Southampton). In 1997 he was made a Professor of Combinatorial Chemistry setting up the UK’s Centre for Combinatorial Chemistry. In 2005 he moved to the University of Edinburgh, where he was Director of a £15M Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in the area of Optical Molecular Imaging (Proteus 2014-2023) and a Doctorial Training Centre (60PhD) in Optical Imaging with Entrepreneurship. In Aug 2023 he moved to Queen Mary University of London as Professor of Therapeutic Innovation and part of the Precision Healthcare university Research Institute. He held an ERC Advanced Grant on “SmartMaterials” for cellular control. He is a co-founder of Ilika Technologies (2004) (which floated on AIMS in 2010), DestiNA Technologies (2010) and Edinburgh Molecular Imaging (2014) and Biocaptiva (2021).

The focus of the Bradley group is the application of the tools of chemistry to allow the manipulation, control and understanding of specific biological processes and functions and to address specific biological questions, problems and needs. One piece of work which forms the basis of my talk is polymer microarray technology which has been developed in the Bradley group for over 15 years. For example my group was the first to use polymer microarray technology to discover new polymers that prevent bacterial adhesion (see J. Mater. Chem., 2011, 21, 96).  In my talk I will introduce polymer microarray technology; including our inkjet mediated fabrication methodologies (which allows over 7,000 different substrates to be made on a single glass slide) and describe how this approach has been used in a large number of stem cell based applications.
