PRODUCING ECO-FRIENDLY NANOPARTICLES FROM MICROALGAE
Microalgae, which are microscopic algae, typically found in freshwater and marine systems, living in both the water column and sediment and are capable of performing photosynthesis, will be used in face moisturizers and in shrinking the cancerous cells. Scientists’ researches on microalgae will enable them to produce nanoparticles and conduct further research for their areas of use.
NANOSCALE APPROACH IN TACKLING BIOFILMS
Nanoscale research are underway to tackle bacterial biofilms, which cause repeating ear and tooth infections, foodborne infections, and medical device-related infections. Asst. Prof. F. Pınar Gördesli Duatepe from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), will conduct a nanoscale research within TUBITAK’s 3501 career project in order to prevent bacteria build up and forming of biofilms. Asst. Prof. F. Pınar Gördesli Duatepe will study the levels of adsorption and their surface properties. So that, new ways of tackling the biofilms, which impose a great burden on health system worldwide due to their persistency and high-levels of antibiotic resistance, would be found.
THE RESEARCH ENLIGHTENS THE WAY FOR NEW ANTIBIOTICS
A new era has started in the fight against bacteria. Assist. Prof. Dr. Osman Doluca from the Department of Biomedical Engineering is going to reveal the roles of the key structure that they have previously discovered in the DNA of the E.coli bacteria within the framework of the TUBITAK 3501 Project Support, thus exploring new ways of fighting with harmful bacteria.
