Projects related to biotechnology and smart materials are carried out in our laboratories. Falcon Laboratory aims to detect and stop the disease and facilitate the healing process with its biomedical studies. The interaction of magnets and biological elements is studied using an interdisciplinary perspective. A disease detection kit has been developed that facilitates the diagnosis of diseases by utilizing the magnetophoretic principle. In addition, studies are carried out on micro-swimmers that can manipulate biological elements in the human body.


The ability of microswimmers to carry drugs to specific sites for diseases has important effects on the course of the disease. On the other hand, 'Green Synthesis', which is realized by minimizing the use of chemicals, aims to produce and use micro-swimmers with an environmentalist approach, based on biological organisms and biocompatible elements. In addition to biological research, multi-disciplinary studies carried out in the fields of magnets and recycling are among the important focal points of the laboratory in terms of industry and science. With the findings obtained as a result of the studies, articles are published and patent applications are made.
