Genetics and Bioengineering
BiographyMustafa Culha obtained his M.S. degree in chemistry from Wake Forest University in 1997 and Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in 2002. He was a post-doctoral researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory about one and half year before joining to Schering-Plough Corporation, NJ as an investigator. In 2004, he joined Genetics and Bioegineering Department of Yeditepe University, Istanbul, Turkey as a faculty member and he is currently a full professor there. His research interest includes elements from chemistry, medicine, biology, material science, photonics, nanoscience and nanotechnology. He has authored more than 65 papers in refereed international journals and 4 book chapters, filed five national and four international patents, and given more than 25 talks at international conferences and meetings.
Research InterestsHis current research interest includes elements from chemistry, medicine, biology, material science, photonics, nanoscience and nanotechnology. The utility of spectroscopic techniques such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) to shed light onto living-nonliving interactions, development of novel detection and diagnostic tools for medical and biomedical applications, understanding nanomaterial-living interactions to develop novel approaches for delivery and therapeutic applications are ongoing research projects in his laboratories.
