Biography
My goal is to understand the mechanisms that lead to inflammatory diseases and to develop cure options for neurodegenerative diseases. Beside of my ongoing medical training, I worked as a researcher with many PIs and laboratories in various fields, such as physiology, pharmacology, neurogenetics. I designed, assisted and involved in several research projects. I worked in the departments of Neuropharmacology, Clinical Neurophysiology, Neurogenetics, Physiology, Cardiology, Thoracic Surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and this allowed me to gain a broad understanding of medicine and human pathology. I authored more than 10 publications, 20 national/international poster/oral presentations in scientific congresses and 1 book chapter. I was elected as a medical education representative for four years in my medical school, and I am the founder and editor-in chief of Marmara Medical Student Journal. As a Student hospitality crew leader, I participated many international meetings and organized student teams.
