Biochemistry welcomes visiting scholar Goknur Kara

We welcome visiting scholar Ms. Goknur Kara, who will be conducting research for the next several months at NCSU. Goknur received a B.Sc. degree in Biochemistry from Ege University, Izmir, Turkey in 2010. She is currently in the M.Sc Program in the Biochemistry Division at Hacettepe University, Ankara and a member of Biopolymeric Systems Research Group. Since 2011, she has been working as a Research Assistant with Dr. Emir Denkbas at the same university.

Goknur joined Dr. Clark's research laboratory in February to study siRNA therapy against chemoresistant cancer cells. She states that "the experience from my training in Dr. Clark's lab will form a strong groundwork for my research and academic career."
