Ceyla Yorucu

Ceyla studied Chemical Engineering at Swansea University, obtaining a MEng degree in 2009. She then joined the Doctoral Training Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine where she completed a PhD project based at Sheffield University. Her thesis work involved spectroscopic (Raman) characterisation of engineered skin and melanoma models. Following this, she spent a year at Durham University as a PDRA working on lipid bilayers using TIR Raman Spectroscopy. She joined the Gwenin group in May to work on the CALIN project.


2015 – PhD Materials Engineering, Sheffield University.
2009 – MEng Chemical and Bio-process Engineering, Swansea University.

News: December 2017

Gwenin - Applied Research in Chemistry and Public Health (ARCH)Dr Robert Hobbs will be attending the UK HealthTech conference delivered by Mediwales that will be held in Cardiff on 5th December. It is hoped that new valuable links and collaborations can be formed at the event for the both the ARCH research group and CALIN. The event promises to provide the latest insights and strategic trends for both the life science and health technology communities.
