He was entitled as a pathologist upon completing his thesis on clinical and pathological aspects of brain tumors. He worked in Ankara Numune Hospital, laboratory of pathology for five years in the years 1985-1989. After fulfilling the requirements offered by Marmara University, he spent 19 years in department of pathology as tenure in years 1989-2008.

Additionally, he is interested in pituitary neoplasms mainly impact of biomarkers as diagnostic tools; enigmatic role of pituitary stem cells; impact of molecular and genetic markers in embryogenesis of pituitary. He published many national and international papers, book chapters. He works as referee for several journals.
