Meet the Guest Editors
Associate Professor Dr. Fabienne Dumoulin first started university studying biology, graduated in biochemistry and then completed her PhD in organic chemistry in Lyon, France in 2002. She is currently associate professor at Acıbadem Mehmet Ali Aydinler University in Istanbul,Turkey.
Her research focuses on the chemistry, properties and applications of phthalocyanines, mainly for photodynamic therapy. She has authored so far 85 research articles, three book chapters, and supervised many Master and PhD students. Fabienne has also been the recipient of several Young Scientist Awards: TUBA-GEBİP from the Turkish Academy of Sciences, BAGEP from the Bilim Akademisi and the Mustafa N Parlar Foundation of METU. She was elected officer of the executive committee of the European Society for Photobiology in 2015 and 2017, is an Associate Editor for RSC Advances and the Journal of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines, and is a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Professor Suna Timur received her PhD degree in Biochemistry at Ege University in 2001. She is currently a full-time Professor in the Department of Biochemistry, at the same University.
Her research is focused on the integration of biomolecules and other species with micro and nanoplatforms to create novel functional bio-based surfaces. She has published more than 200 SCI articles, 4 book chapters and supervised 40 M.Sc and Ph.D thesis. Dr. Timur has also been the recipient of Young Scientist Awards; Encouragement Awards from TUBITAK and the Mustafa N Parlar Foundation of METU and FABED from Istanbul Technical University.
