Assistant Professor for the Chemistry Department of Gebze Technical University
Assistant Prof. Dr. Fabienne Dumoulin started university studying biology, graduated in Biochemistry then completed her PhD in Organic Chemistry in France in 2002. After a post-doc in Pisa, Italy, she joined the Chemistry Department of Gebze Technical University in 2005, where she got interested in the chemistry, properties and applications of tetrapyrrolic derivatives, mainly phthalocyanines.
She authored so far 70 research articles, three book chapters and supervised a dozen of Master and PhD students.
She has been awarded several Young Scientist Awards: from the Turkish Academy of Sciences, the Bilim Akademisi and the Mustafa N Parlar Foundation of METU.
She chairs the GTÜ-photodynamic days, is an officer of the executive committee of the European Society for Photobiology, associate editor for the RSC Advances journal and for the Journal of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines, and member of the Turkish mirror group of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine.
