Mustafa Yildiz is a researcher in the Department of Biophysics, Faculty of Medicine, Trakya University. He holds a BSc degree from Sakarya University (2009) and an MSc degree from Trakya University (2016) and PhD from Trakya University(2022). He quickly became interested in epigenetic control of gene expression which governs virtually all cellular processes such as proliferation, development, differentiation, and interaction with the environment. During his master\'s thesis, he studied gene expression changes in the exposure of nanoparticles and he investigated how different signaling pathways regulate genes in human cells after photodynamic therapy. He has published over 8 articles in refereed journals, 1 chapter and 32 abstracts in scientific meetings.
