Dr David Bunka
Chief Technical Officer
David holds a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and has spent over 20 years developing nucleic acid aptamers against a wide variety of targets, including small molecules (antibiotics, food contaminants, chemotherapeutics), disease associated proteins, several cancer associated cell-lines, viruses and tissue biopsies. This has been facilitated through the use of high throughput automated aptamer selection methods.
David has built up a solid international reputation in the field and has authored several peer reviewed research articles, invited review articles and a book chapter on aptamer based therapeutics. He has also given many guest seminars covering aptamer-based applications, at top universities and international conferences.
