J. Paul Robinson, PhD, is a Distinguished Professor of Cytometry in the College of Veterinary Medicine and a professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Robinson received his PhD in Immunopathology from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan Medical School and is currently the director of the Purdue University Cytometry Laboratories at Purdue University.
Litigation Support - Dr. Robinson provides frequent Patent Infringement expert witness services in the field of Cytometry, the quantitative analysis of cells and cell systems, most commonly used to evaluate bone marrow, peripheral blood, and other fluids in the body. His services are available to attorneys representing plaintiff and defendant and include record review, thorough reporting, depositions, and trial testimony as needed.
Areas of Expertise:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Flow Cytometry
- Cell Analysis
- Fluorescence detection & Analysis
- Blood Analysis
- Optical Detection
- Microbial detection and classification
Backround Experience - Dr. Robinson's research area has been focused on reactive oxygen species primarily in neutrophils and cell lines such as HL-60 cells where he has developed high throughput functional approaches to cell analysis related to mitochondrial function as a measure of drug toxicity. He is also interested in automated diagnostics focused on blood cell phenotypic analysis using data mining processes integrated with real-time multiparameter analysis. In addition he is engaged in developing translational tools for better diagnostics for cervical cancer.
Over the past several years, his group has expanded their interest in bioengineering with hardware and software groups developing innovative technologies such as spectral flow cytometry (USPatent#7280204 - currently commercialized by two companies), optical tools for quantitative fluorescence measurement and advanced classification approaches for clinical diagnostics as well as bacterial classification using elastic scattering of laser light.
Dr. Robinson is an active researcher with over 200 peer reviewed publications, 35 book chapters, and has edited 10 books. He has given over 150 international lectures, 400 conference presentations, and taught advanced courses in over a dozen countries.
