Diving deep into biology, let's explore!
Ever wondered what is going on inside our bodies, inside our cells?
My name is Gamze Bulut. I am originally from Antalya, Turkey. I studied Molecular Biology and Genetics at Bilkent University Ankara, Turkey. I came to the USA in 2008 for my PhD studies at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, TX.
In Dr. Lily Huang’s laboratory, I worked on Cell Biology of red blood cells and how our bodies regulate the signaling pathways required for generating the right number of erythrocytes.
In my post graduate work, I investigated how alternative splicing of an RNA binding protein 'hnRNPL' impacts lung inflammation/cancer under Dr. Charles Chalfant’s supervision at Virginia Commonwealth University.
In Dr. Gary K. Owens’s laboratory, I studied perivascular plasticity and adipose tissue inflammation upon diet induced obesity.
In 2021, I worked as a Research Associate in Dr. Judith Voynow's team at VCU, Pediatrics trying to understand how neutrophil elastase impairs macrophage function using human blood monocyte derived macrophages.
Since Fall 2022, I have been a Visiting Assistant Professor at William and Mary, Department of Biology. So far I have taught 'Molecular Cell Biology (BIOL 310)' and 'Diseases and Cures of the 2020s (BIOL 460)'. Coming up in Spring 2023 I will also be teaching Cell Bio Labs. Stay tuned for updates!
Fell free to reach out to me with any questions and feedback.
Have a wonderful day 💐
