Nagehan Ersoy Tunalı
Nagehan ERSOY TUNALI received her Ph.D., M.Sc., and B.Sc. degrees in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Boğaziçi University, İstanbul (TR). Her Ph.D. work involved “Molecular Analysis of Polyglutamine Diseases and Investigation of the Interaction Between Huntingtin and Nuclear Receptor Corepressor”. She had the opportunity to gain experience in Huntington’s Disease (HD) research at the University of Manchester (UK), CNR-Istituto di Medicina Sperimentale e Biotecnologie (IT) and the University of Wales College of Medicine (UK). She served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cell and Molecular Biology between 2006 and 2016. Nagehan ERSOY TUNALI is currently conducting research on genetic modifiers of HD, localization and interactions of huntingtin, molecular mechanisms of excitotoxicity in HD, diagnostic biomarker discovery in AD, and nanotechnology-based therapeutic approaches in HD and AD.
