Dr. Şeker aims to understand and control nanostructured material properties and their interaction with biological systems to develop effective biomedical tools for both basic and clinical applications. To do this, Şeker’s Multifunctional Nanoporous Metals research group engineers high-throughput miniaturized screening platforms to study nanoscale material properties and their impact on electrical, biochemical, optical and biological properties. The resulting tools and fundamental knowledge will allow researchers to develop miniature drug delivery platforms, biosensors, multifunctional neural interfaces, and organ-on-a-chip platforms.

Accepting students per funding availability.
