In "Developing Diagnostics for the Developing World," Jonathan Cooper of University of Glasgow talks about solutions incorporating acoustics, optics, and electrotechnologies to meet the demands of diagnosing infectious diseases in the developing world.
Cooper has pioneered technologies in biosensors, DNA microarrays, Lab-on-a-Chip, and Bionanotechnologies. He is the founder of Mode Diagnostics, producing home diagnostics for bowel cancer and other diagnostic tests. His recent research has focused on using plasmonics and phononics in the field of medical diagnostics.
Cooper has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical Engineering, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He was appointed to the Wolfson Chair in Biomedical Engineering in 2009 and was awarded a Royal Society Merit Award in 2010.
