Ayşe Sedef Köseer

I completed my undergraduate education in Molecular Biology and Genetics Department at Bilkent University in 2015. In my third year, I received an Erasmus scholarship for 3-months summer intership in Laboratoire de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire du Cancer, Luxembourg. During my internship, I worked on Role of Mcl-1 Expression and mTOR Pathway Modulation in Cancer Cell Survival and Death in response to Cardiac Glycosides. Right now I am Masters student in Dr. Işık Yuluğ’s Lab in Bilkent University, working on investigation of TAGLN gene function in breast cancer and its evaluation as a diagnostic and prognostic marker.

I graduated from Molecular Biology and Genetics Department at Bilkent University in 2016. In 2014, I performed a summer internship at Izmir Institute of Technology where I studied on drug resistance mechanisms of yeast. In 2015, I was granted an ERASMUS Mobility Grant for Traineeships to perform an internship at Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich, Germany. There, I involved in research which aims to identify responsible genes for the development of Congenital Neutropenia in children. In my third year, I was granted by TÜBİTAK (2209-A) to conduct my undergraduate research on breast cancer development. Currently, I am a Masters student in the laboratory of Dr. Işık Yuluğ.
