ACCEPTED! My Project Will Be Funded By TUBITAK

My project will be funded by TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) as 2209/A Undergraduate Student Project.

We will investigate the effects of temozolomide and trichostatin a in glioblastoma cell lines.

Temozolomide has been utilizing to treat glioblastoma which is the most lethal and agressive brain tumor.

Trichostatin A is a histone deacetylase inhibitor. Trichostatin A “opens” tumor supresssor genes and it has apoptotic effects.

This project means a lot to me because this might the first time I will be doing something significant on my own at medical school but of course under supervision of Dr. Mehmet Taşpınar.

That’s one big step for a man one very little leap for mankind.
