Christopher Lowe's Biography

Christopher Lowe, Professor, University of Cambridge, Director, Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences

Professor Christopher R. Lowe was founder Director of the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge and conducts research in both diagnostics and therapeutics in the healthcare biotechnology sector. He is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has 395 peer-reviewed publications, 8 books and monographs, >100 patents and has supervised >95 PhD students and has a number of national and international prizes: “Queen’s Award for Technological Achievement”; “Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education”; “Most Entrepreneurial Scientist of the UK”; OBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours; BBSRC Commercial Innovator of the Year in 2011. He has been the driving force for the establishment of 11 spin-out companies including ProMetic Biosciences Inc (Market Cap $1.9-2.1B), Cambridge Sensors Ltd, Paramata Ltd, Psynova Neurotech Ltd and Royale Therapeutics Ltd., has a number of directorships and fosters entrepreneurship within the University via a Master’s in Bioscience Enterprise, the University’s Seed Fund Committee and other Business School and student-led activities. He is active in various government committees and in a number of legal and entrepreneurial roles. His group's primary research interest is in healthcare biotechnology, particularly where it is applied to the biopharmaceutical, sensors and diagnostics and enzyme and microbial technology sectors. The work is highly multidisciplinary and not only covers aspects of molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry, physics, electronics and engineering, but also the entire range from fundamental science to strategic and applied science. He is currently Director of the newly established Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) within the University of Cambridge.

This talk will discuss the motivation behind the global interest in introducing mobile healthcare systems, including the myriad constraints felt by healthcare systems in both developed and developing nations, high population growth, disease prevalence and the rapid rise in mobile phone penetration in developing nations. The concept of lifetime diagnostic and disease management, the types of physiological and biochemical parameters to be measured and the challenges in making discrete and real-time measurements on patients using non-invasive, minimally invasive and invasive sensor technologies will be covered. Examples will be given from various sensor technologies being developed in the speaker’s laboratory in Cambridge.
