Kübra Doğan, PhD Student

She is currently a PhD student in the Department of Food Engineering at Yıldız Technical University under the supervisions of Assist. Prof Fatih Tornuk and Assist. Prof. Mustafa Guzel (coadviser) with the bursaries of TUBITAK 2211-C and YÖK 100/2000 priority areas. Her main research interests are functional food, medicinal and aromatic plant, food bioactivities and disease, in vitro antidiabetic, in vitro bioavalibility and in vitro biological activity and cell culture. During her PhD, she attended two different laboratory works in London Kings College and Harvard Medical School for food metabolism-digestive cancer relationship and in vitro biological activity studies. These studies have enabled her to develop not only food science experience, but also a valuable and transferable skill set in this academic research area. Also, different multidisciplinary work experiences have provided her an effective ground to understand the relationship between food and health. Currently She is going on research with TUBİTAK-1004-COVID – 19 Project which is Synthesis of Unique Natural Molecule Analogues and Compounds to be Determined from Molecule Libraries by Hybrid Virtual Screening Methods, Investigation of In Vitro and In Vivo Anti-Viral Effects of Their Efficiency Against COVID-19 as a doctoral scholar.

After graduation from the department of Food Engineering at Ege University with a high honours bachelor degree in 2016, she was accepted for TUBITAK 1001 Project about “Optimization of Ultraviolet Pasteurization Conditions of Shalgam (Şalgam) Juice and Determination of Its Shelf Life” as a M.Sc. degree. Meanwhile, she worked as a project assistant in the research called ” The Production of Functional Food Ingredients with Hypoglycemic Activity from Low Quality Tea Product (TUBITAK 1003 project) at TUBITAK Marmara Research Centre. She focused specifically on antidiabetic and bioactive compound in medicinal and aromatic plants in this study.
