Microfluidics, Organ-on-a-chip, Drug screening
During my undergraduate and MSc period, I have attended both theoretical and experimental lectures on lab-on-a-chip systems, microfluidics, cancer and drug screening. During my M.Sc period, I worked on my thesis which is titled as ‘’Lab-on-a-chip devices for drug screening’’. Briefly, I developed a drug screening method using 3D tri-cultures in LOC devices. Moreover, for the period of my MSc degree I worked in Dr. Devrim Pesen OKVUR’s company (INITIO Biomedical Engineering Consulting Industry and Trade Company) for 2 months as research associate and LOC producer/developer. I added new knowledge and skills on my undergraduate education, along with my graduate studies.
