Şükriye Bilir

Dr. Şükriye Bilir, took her B.Sc. degree from Istanbul Technical University, Molecular Biology and Genetics department. Followingly, she achieved her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Osaka University in Japan. Her Ph.D. thesis was about the nuclear pore complex formation mechanisms during cell division under the supervision of Prof Hiraoka and Prof. Haraguchi. During her graduate education, she developed a deep interest towards complicated and specific high-resolution microscopic techniques. Her postdoctoral research too focused on the revealing protein interactions and pathways through microscopic methods. She is mainly focusing on new protein candidates on the autophagic pathways effecting the cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
