Statutory Chair of Biomedical Engineering at University of Oxford
Professor Constantin Coussios is the the Director of the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering. He received his BA, MEng and PhD in Engineering from the University of Cambridge and was elected to the first statutory chair in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford in 2011, with special responsibility for drug delivery and non-invasive therapies. He founded and heads the Biomedical Ultrasonics, Biotherapy and Biopharmaceuticals Laboratory (BUBBL) and recently launched the £10m Oxford Centre for Drug Delivery Devices (OxCD3) under a 5-year programme grant by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications and 16 patents, Prof. Coussios received the UK’s Institute of Acoustics’ Young Person’s Award for Innovation in Acoustical Engineering in 2007, was elected as Secretary-General of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound between 2006-2010 and was honoured with the Society’s Fred Lizzi award in 2012. He was elected as the youngest ever Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America in 2009, and received the Society’s Bruce Lindsay award in 2012. In 2008, he was one of two academic founders of the Oxford University spin-out OrganOx Ltd., which has developed a novel CE-marked normothermic perfusion device for improved organ preservation prior to transplantation through to first-in-man trials and first sales. In 2014, he co-founded OxSonics Ltd, which is developing a new generation of ultrasound-based medical devices for cavitation-enhanced drug delivery and minimally invasive surgery. In 2017, he received the Silver Medal of the UK’s Royal Academy of Engineering in recognition of his contributions to organ preservation and therapeutic ultrasound.
