Engineering advanced polymeric surfaces for smart systems in biomedicine, biology, material science and nanotecnology: A cross-disciplinary approach of Biology, Chemistry and Physics (BIOPOLYSURF)

2008-9-30
The enormous potential of Biology in combination with Chemistry and Physics will lead to break-through advances in material science and to an abundant wealth of exploitable developments, Chemistry and Physics offer advanced tools for synthesis, characterization, theoretical understanding and manufacture of materials and devices, while Biology offer a window into the most sophisticated collection of functional nanostructures that exist. The inspiration searched in Nature will expand not only lo the use of the characteristics of the biological molecules but also to the clean, self-sustainable and efficient way that Nature produces such sophisticated molecules, The project of Biopolysurf aims at providing a platform for research and training In this multidisciplinary field. Biopolysurf is a RTN planned to facilitate the exchange of expertise and knowledge between top-notch groups coming from these three traditional disciplines as a way to achieve a privileged excellence in Nanobiotechnology and to establish a high quality training and truly multidisciplinary platform for young and experienced researches. Our main goal will be the engineering of advanced nanofunctionalized polymeric surfaces for smart systems in biomedicine, biology, material science and nanotechnology by assembling molecules and nano-objects into functional patterns. Biopolysurf is intended as an application-oriented research network. All the tools and knowledge developed within the network will be focused on marketable products. The aimed tasks are designed to be used in tissue engineering, drug (gene) delivery, nanobiotechnology, lab-on-a-chip systems and advanced smart materials and devices for agriculture, food packaging, cosmetics, etc. The interdisciplinary approach of Biopolysurf will establish a complete chain of knowledge: It ranges from innovative concepts for the design and the (bio) synthesis of novel materials to the fabrication of controlled (ordered) nanostructures via self-assembly.

SYNTHESIS OF MACROMOLECULAR CATALYST SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS Oğuzkaya, Funda PhD., Department of Chemistry Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Cihangir Tanyeli September 2011, 144 pages The thesis mainly proposed to design macromolecular catalyst systems. Such catalysts should follow the way of "Green Chemistry" with including no metallic ions and have also the ability of reusability. Hence, nitroxide chemistry was chosen as the key point. Catalysts were synthesized with surely including TEMPO as the functional part as ...
Mediated Effects of Technology Competencies and Experiences on Relations among Attitudes Towards Technology Use, Technology Ownership, and Self Efficacy about Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Boz, Yezdan; Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi (2017-08-01)
This study examined the relations of preservice science teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences to their self-efficacy beliefs about technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). The present study also investigated interrelations among preservice teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences. The participants of study were 665 elementary preservice science teachers (467 fema...
Computational spectral imaging techniques using diffractive lenses and compressive sensing
Kar, Oğuzhan Fatih; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Spectral imaging is a fundamental diagnostic technique in physical sciences with application in diverse fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, astronomy, and remote sensing. In this thesis, we first present a modified version of a high-resolution computational spectral imaging modality and develop a fast sparse recovery method to solve the associated large-scale inverse problems. This technique uses a diffractive lens called photon sieve for dispersing the optical field. We then extend this t...
Numerical studies of Korteweg-de Vries equation with random input data
Üreten, Mehmet Alp; Yücel, Hamdullah; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Scientific Computing (2018)
Differential equations are the primary tool to mathematically model physical phenomena in industry and natural science and to gain knowledge about its features. Deterministic differential equations does not sufficiently model physically observed phenomena since there exist naturally inevitable uncertainties in nature. Employing random variables or processes as inputs or coefficients of the differential equations yields a stochastic differential equation which can clarify unnoticed features of physical event...
System integration of MEMS devices on flexible substrate for fully implantable cochlear implant applications
Soydan, Alper Kaan; Külah, Haluk; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2019)
This master thesis is a result of multidisciplinary research bringing together concepts in electronics engineering, implant technologies, materials science, microfabrication, and device physics. Advancements in healthcare technology and in-vivo implants, electronic devices implemented on flexible substrates are highly demanded in the near future. In order to create a physically flexible device which consists of rigid sub-systems serving distinct purposes and made up of varying types of materials, we need re...
