Welcome to the website of
Brain Cancer Research and Therapy Laboratory (BCRTL) !
BCRTL is a part of the Koç University School of Medicine, located in İstanbul, Turkey.
The overall goal of our research group is to identify the fundamental mechanisms that govern apoptotic resistance and extreme invasiveness of highly malignant cancers.
Specifically, we aim to understand what genetic and epigenetic changes cause the aggressive phenotype of the most malignant brain tumors, Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM).
To this end, we are employing a wide range of experimental techniques and state-of-the art molecular tools and animal models.
