Biography

After medical internship and clinical practice, Dr. Gulsuner earned a PhD in molecular biology and human genetics. His PhD studies involved detailed neurological diagnosis and brain imaging, experimental and analytical approaches of classical genetics, and the first application of next generation sequencing in Turkey.  He then joined Mary-Claire King’s laboratory at the University of Washington as a postdoctoral fellow, where he developed analytical approaches to maintain and analyze large-scale genomics and transcriptomics data to identify genetic bases of a very wide range of phenotypes.
