Our next speaker Dr Lakmal Jayasinghe will be speaking about ‘Chemistry and Platform development of Oxford Nanopore Technologies’.


About the Speaker

Dr Lakmal Jayasinghe leads the biological nanopore research team at Oxford Nanopore Technologies.

Lakmal joined Oxford Nanopore in 2006 after finishing his PhD in chemical biology at the University of Oxford. During his PhD in the Hagan Bayley group, Lakmal studied different nanopores and gained a wealth of knowledge in engineering nanopores by using genetic and chemical approaches.

His responsibilities at ONT include improving the readout signal of the ONT platform by upgrading its current nanopore reader and discovering and engineering new nanopores to suit various ONT applications and platforms.

Lakmal also works with many academic nanopore collaborators across the world to make sure Oxford Nanopore uses the best possible nanopore reader in its platforms.
