As Chief Scientific Officer, Mark plays a senior role in the strategic directions of the institute emphasizing the important links among the various research Divisions in both basic and clinical science using state of the art techniques to address the medical problems of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Diabetes is a serious public health issue and the dramatic rise of diabetes in the community is a major concern. The complications of diabetes include kidney disease, eye disease and vascular disease. Diabetes is a major factor in cardiovascular disease and the most common cause of kidney failure in the western world.
Mark has received many awards and is an eminent researcher in the field of diabetes and its complications. His work has profoundly improved our understanding of this disease and has been of direct benefit to millions of sufferers around the world. His distinguished body of research has led to new treatments for sufferers of diabetes that are today considered standard. He has played a key role in translating exciting discoveries in the laboratory to clinical care with seminal studies defining various treatment strategies to reduce the burden of diabetic complications.

Dr Mark Cooper
Dr Mark Cooper is the Deputy Director (Research) of the Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute as well as the Director of the JDRF Centre for Diabetes Complications at the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.
He is head of the Diabetes Division which encompasses not only diabetic complications but also laboratories studying metabolism and epigenetics. He holds honorary appointments as a Professor of Medicine at both Monash University and University of Melbourne. He is a trained endocrinologist with an appointment at the co-located Alfred Hospital.
Dr Cooper studied medicine at the University of Melbourne and then completed his physician's training at the Austin Hospital as well as his PhD under Dr. George Jerums and Professor Austin Doyle in the University of Melbourne Department of Medicine, Austin Hospital.
Dr. Cooper has successfully competed for a large number of peer reviewed grants over the last 15 years from a range of organisations including not only JDRF but also the National Health & Medical Research Council of Australia, National Institutes of Health, National Heart Foundation of Australia, Diabetes Australia and Kidney Health Australia. In 1999 Dr Cooper was awarded the Eric Susman prize from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians for his research in the field of renal and vascular complications of diabetes. In 2005 he was awarded the Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) Kellion Award for outstanding contribution to diabetes research in Australia. In 1999 he was awarded a Centre Grant from JDRF which was subsequently renewed in 2003. He was recently awarded a five-year scholars award by JDRF, one of only 2 awarded worldwide. His is the first non- North American to receive this highly prestigious award. This work has now been further supported by a 5 year Australia Fellowship awarded by the NHMRC in 2009.

"Plant breeders are still very important," says Mark Cooper, DuPont Pioneer research director. "Today, however, they can count on help from experts in an array of different fields to make larger genetic gains for growers more efficiently."
Cooper cites four steps breeders require to develop improved hybrids.
"As we add mathematicians, modelers and statisticians, we improve our breeding methodology," Cooper says. "Technologies and tools are constantly changing and improving. These experts help us improve efficiency, test more genetic lines, and grow even more confident in the results."
Pioneer specialists can comb through masses of genetic information with advanced computing and modeling programs. "We're continually refining the models," Cooper says. "We combine the right data with the correct modeling programs to develop improved predictions."
Pioneer conducts experiments across the globe to learn more about how corn hybrids perform in different growing environments. As they develop better products and understand where those new hybrids perform best, breeders are better positioned to support the Pioneer sales professionals who help customers place the right product on the right acre.
"We're also looking at phenotypes or physical data in a new way," Cooper says.
"We hire people with expertise in the technologies we need now and will need in the future," Cooper says. "Pioneer is investing in the future, making sure we can continue to offer growers better products year after year, decade after decade."
Pioneer also supports universities that are launching the next generation of plant breeders, molecular scientists, data-management gurus and other technical experts. "We provide opportunities for people who want to make a difference and help feed a growing world population," Cooper says.
