Professor Mustafa Culha obtained his Ph.D. degree in chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Michael Sepaniak at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in 2002. He then joined Prof. Vo-Dinh’s research group as a post-doctoral researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (2002-2003) before joining the Schering-Plough Corporation, NJ as an investigator. In 2004, he accepted a faculty position in the Genetics and Bioengineering Department of Yeditepe University, Istanbul, Turkey. He is currently involved in active teaching and research there. His current research interests include elements of chemistry, medicine, biology, materials science, photonics, nanoscience and nanotechnology. He uses the spectroscopic techniques such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) to shed light onto living-nonliving interactions and to develop novel detection and diagnostic tools for medical and biomedical applications. He is the author of more than 63 papers in international refereed journals, and sev
