Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı
Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı received her Ph.D., M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Molecular Biology and Genetics at Boğaziçi University, İstanbul (Turkey). 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 become 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 Associate Professor Dr at İstanbul Medeniyet University, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, İstanbul (TR). Her research interests include genetic modifiers of HD, localization and interactions of huntingtin, molecular mechanisms of excitotocity in HD. Her specializations are also extended to biomarker discovery and nanotechnology based therapeutic approaches in Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases.
