  • Our Research in the News

    Başlık ResimThe research on micro and nanopatterned surfaces was started around 2004 by Prof. Vasif Hasirci and surface-cell interactions were studied for guidance of cells on biomaterials. The latest findings in this field were on the design of a "microfluidic system to screen cancer cells" conducted as a part of Dr. Menekse Ermis Sen's PhD thesis and was recently in the news in Turkey. This study was conducted in cooperation with Prof.
