Biomimetics Research Group taking inspirations from nature and using those cues to answer complex biological problems. Biomimetics group imitates nature and transforms the knowledge into new biotechnological products and useful technologies. The ultimate goal of our group is to develop “bio-inspired” technologies and products which have applications in fields ranging from bioengineering to biomedical systems.
Our research group has interdisciplinary research themes in general research areas of biochemistry, biology, materials science and bioengineering;
Artıfıcıal Cell Membrane Technologıes
A key challenge in membrane receptor research is to maintain natural environment. Artificial cell membrane platforms are the known best candidates which “mimics” the natural environment for membrane proteins. We are developing lipid-based artificial cell membranes as an experimental platform which accommodates membrane receptors for further pharmaceutical and diagnostic applications.
