Research Student

Titinun Suannun, Thailand

Titinun graduated from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) with a Bachelor’s degree in Bio and Brain Engineering (major program) and Science and Technology Policy (minor program). With an academic background in neuropathology and bioengineering, she has investigated hyperexcitability of neuronal signal transmission at gap junctions as a candidate hypothesis contributing to Epilepsy. The title of her undergraduate research is “The antiepileptic effect of Carbenoxolone in Kainate-induced chronic epilepsy model in mice”

Titinun worked as a research unit assistant in the Biomedical Engineering research unit in the National Metal and Materials Technology Centre (MTEC) where she took part in a number of biomaterials and medical devices projects in Thailand. In 2015, she was selected to receive a royal Thai government scholarship from the Ministry of Science and Technology in order to pursue her higher education in biomaterials for four years.

In January 2016, Titinun began her MPhil/PhD program at UCL Eastman Dental Institute. She is now dealing with alternative biomaterials with optimal biocompatibility and regulated cell migration to be used as scaffolds in peripheral nerve regeneration. Her research project aims to develop biomaterials suitable for use in nerve tissue engineering.
