Biography

Ozgul Gok graduated from Boğaziçi University with bachelor’s degrees on Chemistry (2006) and Molecular Biology&Genetics (2007). She continued in the same university to persue her Msc (2010) and Phd (2014) degrees in Chemistry, working on development of dendritic and polymeric drug delivery systems as promising cancer therapies, which made her receive BAP Boğaziçi University Best Doctoral Dissertation Award. During these years, she has been in University of Utah, Department of Bioengineering (2011, USA) and University of Bergen, Department of Biomedicine (2009, Norway) as a short-term visiting researcher. As a post-doctoral fellow at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, she has focused on designing dendritic nanomedicines for CNS-related disorders and their translation to clinics. Her research interest is mainly about the design of smart drug delivery systems as nanomedicines composed of well-engineered biomaterials and their translation into clinics to provide a wider treatment window for therapeutic agents and inflammatory drugs with an improved quality of patient life.
