Chris Adams PhD

Head of Biosensor Development

Areas of Expertise
  • Developing biomedical devices of clinical utility
  • Micro/nanofabrication including development on flexible polymeric substrates
  • Low cost ASIC design and integration
With years of experience in Bioengineering Chris Adams PhD is QuantuMDx’s Biosensor Team Lead.

He began his career in 1994 at the University of Glasgow where he gained his PhD in Physics. Having always been fascinated by science he began his career by supporting the development of the early outreach and infrastructure for Glasgow science centre.

The crossover between physics, engineering and medical sciences happened in 2003 whilst he was involved in developing ASICs and novel fabrication techniques on flexible, biocompatible and implantable electronics for retinal prosthesis and direct cell-electronic coupling. More recently he has been involved in intracellular silicon lab-on-chip applications and ultrafast imaging of neural communication pathways to understand neural networks and cortical signalling.

He currently leads QuantuMDx’s Biosensor team, helping develop the sensor architectures, active electronics and signal processing for specific biological target recognition. Chris has a wealth of experience working in academic, research and commercial environments having held senior positions in multiple successful start-up companies whose value exceeds £100M, he has more than 10 publications and multiple patent applications.
