Emre Karakoç, Ph.D.
Date & Time
October 6, 2017 11:00
Venue
Dokuz Eylul University iBG-izmir

About the speaker

Dr. Karakoc is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering at Istanbul Medipol University since March 2016. He graduated from Bilkent University Dept. of Computer Engineering in 2002, and received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Simon Fraser University in 2007. During his Ph.D. he worked on the RNA secondary structure prediction, RNA-RNA interaction prediction and QSAR models for clustering small chemical molecules.

He then joined the Department of Genome Sciences of the University of Washington as a postdoctoral fellow. He worked on identification of small insertions and deletions from next generation sequencing data, computational prediction of human variation and system biology applications (protein-protein interactions) of these variants in complex diseases such as autism. He then joined the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology as a postdoctoral researcher where he worked on population genetics, specifically developing computational methods for identification of admixture and adaptive introgression. Since then he is applying combinatorics algorithms on a wide range of biological problems.

Epithelial-mesenchymal transition: The crossroads between differentiation, tumorigenicity, proliferation and DNA repair

Speaker
Eugene TULCHINSKY, Ph.D.
University of Leicester, UK

Eugene Tulchinsky, Ph.D.
Date & Time
September 14, 2017 14:00
Venue
Dokuz Eylul University iBG-izmir
Aziz Sancar Auditorium Inciraltı, IZMIR

About the speaker

Dr.Tulchinsky graduated from the Moscow State University and was awarded PhD in Molecular Biology at the Engelhardt Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences. He was as a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center before setting up his Laboratory in Leicester.

Dr.Tulchinsky’s interests are in the area of the interaction between EMT and other critical pathways leading to oncogenic transformation, cell proliferation, senescence or death. The data from his laboratory show that different EMT programs may cooperate with classical oncogenic pathways in oncogenic transformation. They may or may not affect cell cycle progression, senescence and DNA damage-induced apoptosis. Dr.Tulchinsky proposes that EMT programs determine such important cancer properties as altered sensitivity of disseminating cancers to different therapies or a phenomenon of dormant metastasis.
