As Arslan-Ergul group, our research interest can be summarized in one word as aging. We investigate aging at the cellular level, and observe the outcome at disease and behavior level. At the cellular level, we work on cells, – cancer cell lines, primer cells, and stem cells, zebrafish brain, and human derived stem cells. At the behavior level, we test zebrafish for learning and memory. At the disease level, we are working on patient materials from Hacettepe Hospitals.  We are jointly utilizing laboratories at Hacettepe Stem Cell Center, Hacettepe Oncology Hospital, Bilkent National Nanotechnology Research Center, Bilkent University Brain Research Center, and Zebrafish Facilities.
