I graduated with a first class honours degree from Siriraj Medical School, Mahidol University, Thailand in 2004. My research career began in 2007 when I was awarded the Golden Jubilee Scholarship from Thailand Research Fund to study PhD. in Molecular Genetics and Genetics engineering at Mahidol University. During my PhD. I worked with dengue virus to investigate interactions between host cells and the virus and I successfully published papers showing a role of autophagy pathway during dengue virus infection.
In 2012 I moved to Bristol, UK and got the great opportunity to join Professor Murphy’s laboratory where I started my research in neuroendocrinology. My research interest focuses on the regulation of vasopressin synthesis in hypothalamus. With great support and fantastic teamwork, we successfully identified a novel transcription factor responsible for vasopressin transcription (Creb3l1). Based on this finding, we are now extensively exploring and building up the molecular network that controls expression of vasopressin in magnocellular neurons of the hypothalamus.
