Dr. Aylin Hanyaloglu Imperial College London, UK1 Talk
Aylin attended King’s College London where she attained a 1st Class honours degree in Human Biology. Although her PhD studies on pituitary hormone G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) commenced at the MRC Human Reproductive Sciences Centre, Edinburgh, a move to Perth, Australia resulted in her PhD in Molecular Endocrinology being awarded... read morein 2002 with Distinction from the University of Western Australia (under the supervision of Profs Karin Eidne and Graeme Martin). Her postdoctoral training with Prof Mark von Zastrow (University of California, San Francisco) identified novel core cellular machinery critical for receptor sorting and signalling. She was appointed as Lecturer at Imperial College London in 2007 to establish her independent group and where her group’s research continues on understanding the fundamental cell biological mechanisms regulating GPCR signal transduction, and applying these mechanisms to understand the role of this superfamily in diverse physiological and pathophysiological systems. Her work has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, BBSRC, Royal Society, MRC and Genesis Research Trust.
