Cemil Özgül

Holds a BSc degree in Physics and MSc degree in Biophysics from Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey.

He completed his Master’s thesis in Department of Biophysics, working on Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin Cation Channels in dorsal root ganglion neurons in rats.

He is currently a 2nd-year PhD student, working on Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin Cation Channels and oxidative stress with Patch – Clamp Tecnique.
