Mark Bradley's Biography

Mark Bradley, Professor, Schools of Chemistry and Medicine, University of Edinburgh

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 is now Director of a £15M Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in the area of Optical Molecular Imaging (Proteus 2014-2023). He is also PI on a Doctorial Training Centre (60PhD) in Optical Imaging with Entrepreneurship and holds an ERC advanced grant on “SmartMaterials” for cellular control. He has been elected to fellowships of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. In 2011 he was awarded the Chancellors Award – the highest research award of the University of Edinburgh. In 2012 he was awarded an honoree Professorship by Changzhou University, China. He is a co-founder of Ilika Technologies (2004) (which floated on AIMS in 2010), DestiNA Technologies (2010) and Edinburgh Molecular Imaging (2014).

Three research themes dominate in his group at this time:

(i). The development and exploitation of polymer-based technologies for the identification and application of polymers for controlling and modulating stem cells.

(ii). The development of “smart” fluorescent reporters for in vivo based optical molecular imaging.

(iii). In vivo catalytic chemistry

The EPSRC Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC) ‘Proteus’ seeks to address the challenge of lung diseases by developing a chemistry and optical fibre based healthcare technology platform that combines physiological sensing with multiplexed optical molecular imaging. This technology enables in situ measurements in the distal lung to assess tissue function while generating and characterising unique signatures of pulmonary disease. In my talk I will describe the chemistry, the optical fibre technology and the CMOS SPAD detectors behind the teams optical imaging platforms and illustrate their in vivo application with the detection of bacterial infection deep in the human lung and the analysis of fibrosis.
