John Rogers is the Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Neurological Surgery for Northwestern University. He earned a B.A in chemistry and a B.S. in physics from the University of Texas at Austin, and an S.M. in physics, an S.M. in chemistry, and a Ph.D in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Rogers has researched how best to leverage the innate characteristics of liquid crystals, polymers, and biological tissues in forms like ribbons or tubes.
He has published nearly 500 papers and been awarded over 50 current and 30 pending patents for innovations developed in his work with nano and molecular scale fabrication for photonic applications. His work has been recognized with a MacArthur Fellowship, a Lemelson-MIT Prize, a Smithsonian Award for American Ingenuity in the Physical Science, and an A.C. Eringen Medal from the Society of Engineering Science.
He is a fellow of the American Physical Society, the Materials Research Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the National Academy of Inventors.
His current research is largely focused on bio-integrated technologies or those inspired by other biological entities, and innovations in the soft materials available for conduction of signals, conformal electronics, and microfluidic functionalities.
