The main research activity in my lab is related to cell therapy and stem cell studies. I am currently leading research projects in which we are creating human and mouse IPSCs (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) and trying to reprogram pancreatic beta cells from various cell types including differentiated somatic cells and stem cells.
We are currently looking for 2 M.Sc. students who will work in a TÜBİTAK project as fellows. Please email Dr. Akıncı to learn details and to see other open positions in his lab.
