Deniz Yucel has expertise in the field of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, 2D and 3D polymeric material design, stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells from various sources and neural stem cells), construction of biosensors, and enzyme/protein immobilization on polymeric materials. She received Best Ph.D. Thesis Award in 2010 from Middle East Technical University for her Ph.D. thesis titled, “Stem cell based nerve tissue engineering on guided constructs”. During her Ph.D., she worked on mesenchymal stem cells and microfluidic systems for one year at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) - Harvard Medical School and at Tufts University. She is currently working on stem cells, studying their behavior on different scaffolds, and mainly on tissue engineering applications for various tissues like nerve, bone, tendon, and blood vessel.
