Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı
Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı has got her Ph.D., M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Molecular Biology and Genetics at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul (TR). Her PhD work involved “Molecular Analysis of Polyglutamine Diseases and Investigation of the Interaction Between Huntingtin and Nuclear Receptor Corepressor”. She had the opportunity to get experienced in Huntington’s Disease (HD) research at University of Manchester (UK), CNR-Istituto di Medicina Sperimentale e Biotecnologie (IT) and University of Wales College of Medicine (UK). She served as the Editor-in Chief of Journal of Cell and Molecular Biology between years 2006 and 2016. Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı currently works as an Assistant Professor Dr at İstanbul Medeniyet University, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Istanbul (TR). Her research interests cover molecular diagnosis of polyglutamine repeat diseases, genetic modifiers of HD, localization and interactions of huntingtin, and the molecular mechanisms of excitotocity in HD. Her interests are also extended to genetic susceptibility to kidney stone disease and urological cancers, biomarker analyses for bladder and breast cancers, pharmacogenetics and genetic analyses of childhood metabolic disorders.
