Quote

“The creation of engineering tools to discover and understand biological mechanisms takes place at the interface of disciplines.”

Research profile

Dr. Demircan Yalcin is a postdoctoral fellow of Neuro-Nanoscale Engineering at the Microsystems section in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. She is working on the design and implementation of novel micro physiological sensors, which combine electrical and mechanical modalities. By using her hands-on experience with 3D electrodes in analyzing the biological cells in microfluidics applications, she focuses with her current research on “robustly re-using 3D MEAs in nervous-systems-on-a-chip: novel platforms and best practices”.

Academic background

Dr. Demircan Yalcin was born in 1988. She received her, B.Sc., MSc, PhD in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey in 2010, 2013 and 2018, respectively and she also has a Minor Degree in Biology from the same university. She received her Ph.D. on the topic: A Lab-on-a-chip System Integrating Dielectrophoretic Detection and Impedance Counting Units for Chemotherapy Guidance in Leukemia by pursuing her enthusiasm for creating tools for early diagnosis and prognosis of fatal diseases. During her 9 years’ hands-on laboratory experience, she studied various fields of biosensors and microsystems technology such as lab-on-a-chip systems for blood and cancer cell applications and MEMS-based dielectrophoretic cell separation systems for multidrug resistance studies of cancer cells. Between 2015 and 2019, she was involved at Mikro Biyosistemler, Ankara, Turkey as an R&D Engineer. She had a crucial role in the foundation and development of first prototypes.
