Cemile Bektaş, PhD



I am a Postdoctoral Associate affiliated with the T32 Postdoctoral Training Program for Translating Research in Regenerative Medicine. I received my BSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics, my MSc and PhD degrees in the Biotechnology at the Middle East Technical University within the BIOMATEN Research Group. I have expertise in scaffold processing techniques including electrospinning, micropatterning and 3D printing. I joined the Laboratory for Biomaterials Research in March 2019 as the manager of the 3D Printing Lab. I am currently working on development of new polymeric inks for 3D printing, exploration of hydrogels for tooth regeneration, and fabrication of 3D-printed scaffolds for spinal cord regeneration.
