MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİMETALURJİ VE MALZEME MÜHENDİSLİĞİ


Biomaterials and Nanomedicine Laboratory

Primary Researcher(s) / Coordinator(s): 
Assist. Prof. Dr. Batur Ercan
General Information: 

The group is interested in integrating fundamental materials science concepts with biological principles to improve currently used biomaterials to heal damaged tissues. Particularly, biomaterial surface features are modified to possess nanofeatures to promote orthopedic, cardiovascular and skin cell interactions, while enhancing antibacterial properties.

  • DC power supply
  • Olympus phase contrast microscope
  • Precision balance
  • Centrifuge
  • pH meter
  • Vortex and hot plate
  • Sonicator
  • Rocker
  • Drying Oven
  • -20oC and +4oC refrigerator
Completed and Ongoing Research Projects: 
  • Synthesis of insulin loaded bioceramic nanoparticles for diabetes. METU Research Funds (BAP). 2016-. 
Collaborators: 
  • Prof. Thomas Webster, Chemical Engineering Department, Northeastern University
  • Prof. Mehmet Toner, MGH, Harvard Medical School
