About

Rohan T. Ranasinghe received his MChem (2000) and PhD (2005) from the University of Southampton under the supervision of Professor Tom Brown. From 2005–2008, he worked with Peter Roach in Southampton, synthesising oligonucleotides on encoded microparticles for use in multiplexed assays. Since 2008 he has been carrying out postdoctoral research with Professor David Klenerman at the University of Cambridge, with the aim of developing ultrasensitive point-of-care nucleic acid tests for infectious agents, as part of the European Commission-funded TheraEDGE project. His research interests include nucleic acids chemistry and biophysics, molecular diagnostics, single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy and synthesis of modified oligonucleotides.
