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).

Over the past decade, we have designed and developed an entire palette of molecules containing targeting moieties (that specifically bind to Gram+ bacteria, Gram- bacteria and fungi) conjugated to a range of fluorophores to enable prompt and precise diagnosis of clinically relevant pathogens. I will describe these probes and explain how they have been used in a number of human systems including in vivo (in the human lung) and in eye and urinary tract infections. I will also describe a range of molecules that allow the binding and detection of bacterial infections and their subsequent elimination of infection following illumination.
