Elif Dilek, a master’s student in the Molecular Biology and Genetics department, presented her research at the GEMSTONE Project's 1st Dissemination Event which aims to bring together early career researchers working in the neurodevelopmental aspects of brain disorders and genetically engineered models. The poster presentation, titled “Investigation of differential phosphorylation states of NFIB, a regulator of brain development” included the preliminary findings which investigates the regulation and signaling pathways involved in NFIB phosphorylation, a transcription factor critical in the development of multiple organ systems including the brain, in glioblastoma cells. Notably, this research received support from the Health Institutes of Turkey (TÜSEB) A2-YL-Project Support Program for Master Students.
