Professor John A. Rogers obtained undergraduate degrees in chemistry and in physics from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1989. From MIT, he received SM degrees in physics and in chemistry in 1992 and the PhD degree in physical chemistry in 1995. From 1995 to 1997, Rogers was a Junior Fellow at Harvard University. He joined Bell Labs as a Member of Technical Staff and then as Director of the Condensed Matter Physics Department from 1997 to 2002. He then spent thirteen years on the faculty at the University of Illinois, most recently as Director of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory. In 2016, he joined Northwestern University with appointments in Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Medicine, where he is also Director of the Querrey-Simpson Institute for Bioelectronics. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. John Rogers developed with his team a collection of new concepts in materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and advanced manufacturing that serve as the foundations for diverse, novel classes of ‘biocompatible’ electronic, optoelectronic and microfluidic systems designed to interface to nearly any locations across the human body.
