Reyhan METİN AKKAYA

I graduated from Kadir Has University, Department of Bioinformatics and Genetics. Then I have completed my master's degree in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics there. Currently, I am a doctorate student in the Department of Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Biotechnology at Istanbul Technical University. Bioinformatics, computer-aided drug design, molecular dynamics simulations of proteins, and protein-drug interactions are among my areas of interest. I will study molecular dynamics simulations of dynein motor proteins for my doctorate thesis with my advisor Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mert Gür.
