Serçin Karahüseyinoğlu

Dr. Karahüseyinoğlu graduated from Hacettepe University School of Medicine and later specialized as a cell biologist, histologist and clinical embryologist at Ankara University Department of Histology & Embryology. Two main topics of her interest include reproductive biology-mainly focused on gametes and embryo, and human mesenchymal stem cells derived from umbilical cord. Her work currently focuses on use of polymeric cell carriers supplemented with human mesenchymal stem cells or endometrial cell co-cultures to facilitate mammalian embryo implantation. The genome edition of mammalian embryos in order to regulate implantation capacity by CRISPR/Cas9 based technologies is also a main interest of her lab work. Her lab expertise includes a wide spectrum of micromanipulation and other ART skills regarding manipulation of human gametes and embryos, histological/cytological techniques, along with imaging and microscopy in life sciences. Her interest in microscopy mainly focuses on applications of fluorescence imaging, confocal microscopy, and microscopic imaging techniques via use of light sheet, multi-photon and super-resolution microscopes.
