Post Doctoral Researchers


Xiaoshan Yue

Xiaoshan earned her BS and MS degree in biology from Tsinghua University in China.  She get her Ph.D. degree in Bimolecular Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan.  In the meanwhile, she also worked in RIKEN as a Junior researcher in Nano Medical Engineering.  She did her postdoctoral training in proteomics and phosphoproteomics using mass spectrometry technique in University of Notre Dame.  Her research interest is integrating biological, bimolecular, bioengineering, and analytical chemistry methodologies to study mechanisms in life science.  She is currently working on establishing mammary gland-on-chip to unraveling the crosstalk between tumor and tumor microenvironment in controlled microsystems using hydrogel-based microwell array system and hydrogel-based micro channel system.  She is also studying the effect of aging ECM on cardiomyocyte functions.


Gokhan Bahcecioglu

After completing his BS in Molecular Biology and Genetics Program, Gokhan earned his MS and PhD degrees in the Biotechnology Program at the Middle East Technical University. He worked in BIOMATEN and gained expertise in scaffold processing techniques including electrospinning, freeze drying and 3D printing. He joined the Zorlutuna Lab in 2018 and is currently working on aging-mimicking tissue engineered cancer and heart-on-chip models.
