John A. Rogers, Northwestern University, received the 2022 James Prize in Science and Technology Integration.

Rogers’ innovative research in science, engineering, and medicine has established diverse classes of bio-integrated technologies with capabilities for improving health and increasing our understanding of living systems.

Rogers has developed unique, biocompatible forms of electronic, optoelectronic, and microfluidic systems that can bend, twist, and stretch to enable minimally invasive integration with soft tissues of the human body.  Biodegradable versions of these devices have transformed our appreciation for how technology can be used to treat diseases and disorders.  In these and other programs, Rogers’ interdisciplinary work integrates fundamental and applied science as the foundations for materials and devices that address key challenges in patient care and biomedical research.   

The James Prize in Science and Technology Integration is presented annually and carries with it a $50,000 prize. The prize honors outstanding contributions made by researchers who are able to adopt or adapt information or techniques from outside their fields, and thus integrate knowledge from two or more disciplines (e.g., engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, biomedicine, geosciences, astronomy, or computational sciences) to solve a major contemporary challenge not addressable from a single disciplinary perspective. The prize was established in 2020 by Robert James.
