In September of 2016, Professor John Rogers joined Northwestern University as the Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Chemistry and Neurological Surgery, where he is also the founding Director of the newly endowed Center on Bio-Integrated Electronics.

At Northwestern, Rogers leads the Rogers Research Group, whose current research focuses on "soft materials for conformal electronics, nanophotonic structures, microfluidic devices, and microelectromechanical systems, all lately with an emphasis on bio-inspired and bio-integrated technologies." 

Rogers’ research includes fundamental and applied aspects of nano and molecular scale fabrication as well as materials and patterning techniques for unusual electronic and photonic devices, with an emphasis on bio-integrated and bio-inspired systems.  He has published more than 550 papers and is an inventor on over 100 patents and patent applications, more than 70 of which are licensed or in active use by large companies and startups that he has co-founded. 

John Rogers holds his BA and BS degrees in Chemistry and in Physics from the University of Texas, Austin. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1995 from MIT and was a Junior Fellow in the Harvard University Society of Fellows from 1995-97.
