Emin is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Neuroscience Program at Bilkent University. He obtained his B.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University in 2011, and his M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013.

Tuba Sahin received her B.A. degree in Psychology at Bilkent University in 2014. After having obtained a Bachelor's degree, she attended the international “Interdisciplinary Neuroscience” Master’s program at Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany and graduated in 2016. Her master’s thesis was on the topic Neuroblastoma, a devastating pediatric cancer that arises from the neural crest during late fetal stages. She correlated the expression and function of putative drivers of neural crest development with spontaneous tumor regression in neuroblastoma.

She is currently pursuing her PhD on Neuroscience at Bilkent University and her research interest comprises the understanding of the gene-environment interactions and the underpinnings of the vulnerability to psychosis by using neuro-imaging, genetic and psychological analysis.

Being a final year PhD candidate, I am currently investigating transcriptome level fluctuations that occur in mammalian immune cells treated with telomeric repeats (mimicked using immunosuppressive ODNs called A151). Our research has recently shed light into the mystery lying behind the molecular mechanism(s) of telomere-based immune suppression. To this end, I take full advantage of bioinformatics tools in Linux environment and high level coding (e.g. Python, C, R). As a sideline to my main project, I am also interested in proteomics data analysis (i.e. MS output) within the context of immunity.
