Dr. Soracha is a professor at Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine at Prince of Songkla University. She received her Ph.D. in Nanoengineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2014 and received postdoctoral trainings in the Nanoengineering Department at UCSD. She holds a M.E. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Colorado State University and B.Pharm. from Pharmacy School in Thailand. Her research focuses on the development of biomimetic nanomaterials and multifunctional nanoparticles for several therapeutic applications including the treatment and diagnostic of infectious diseases, and cancer, leading to 25 publications in highly cited journals such as PNAS, ACS Nano, Nano Letters, Advanced Materials, and Nature (H-index 20). Soracha’s goal is to develop novel therapeutic nano-biomaterials that can translate into clinical practice, with the aim of improving patient’s health.  She received an International Fellowship from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in 2012, a Frontiers of Innovation Scholars Program (FISP) Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015, Thailand Toray Science Foundation Award in 2017. She currently is a member of the Global Young Academy (GYA) and co-chair of Thai Young Scientists Academy (TYSA) in 2018. With interdisciplinary background, her passion is to make better therapeutics to cure any disease using engineering approaches. She believes that cross-disciplinary collaboration is important to create an innovation.
