Research profile

 

Yigit Altay joined to van Hest research group in November 2018 to explore out-of-equilibrium communication between nanoreactors as a postdoctoral researcher. Transient structural organization as a result of reversible interactions between individual structures is a significant characteristic of biological systems. Rearrangements of individual cells and cellular populations constantly take place as a result of interaction between different cells, in response to chemical cues. Colloidal systems that operate out-of-equilibrium attempt to replicate the interactivity and, in particular, dynamic association displayed in biological systems. To probe such dynamic behavior, Altay develops systems which are able to engage in assembly and disassembly processes.

I see chemistry as a useful tool to shed light on the complex molecular systems that exhibit emergent properties that are analogous to those found in nature.

Academic background

Yigit Altay was born in Ankara, Turkey, in 1988. He received his BSc (cum laude) in 2011 from Bilkent University. He obtained his MSc in 2013 from same university, working on selective fluorescence sensing of biological thiols using a BODIPY based bifunctional probe and the catalytic activity of short peptide amphiphile nanostructures that have implications on the origin of life under the supervision of Prof. Engin Umut Akkaya. In 2010, he spent six months at Eindhoven Univeristy of Technology, the Netherlands, where he was working on the deformation and swelling of hydrogels at the molecular level using fluorescent probes. He joined to the research group of Sijbren Otto at the University of Groningen in September 2013 to pursue his PhD, working on novel self-replicating peptides in dynamic combinatorial libraries. He joined to van Hest research group in November 2018 to explore out-of-equilibrium communication between nanoreactors as a postdoctoral researcher.
