Dr Sireethorn Tungsirisurp is a research associate working within the King’s Forensic Biochemistry group specialising in the development of biosensors for Forensics and biomedical applications. Sireethorn obtained her PhD (funded by Leverhulme Trust) in 2021 working on the development of aptamer-based biosensors for the detection of phytohormone auxin in planta. Currently, Sireethorn is concurrently working on two postdoctoral research projects to design an aptamer-based biosensor for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus on surfaces (funded by EPSRC) and to develop DNA aptamers as part of a selective and efficient microRNA delivery to cardiac fibroblasts (funded by King's BHF centre).

Research Interests:

  • Biosensors for forensics and biomedical application.
  • Selection and characterisation of DNA aptamers.
  • Analytical and Biophysical techniques to analytes detection and aptamer-analyte binding affinity.
