Short research description: 

Dr. Tumer is working as an Associate Professor at the department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University (COMU), Çanakkale, Turkey. Her laboratory studies health benefits of crops and medicinal plants. She focuses on understanding the molecular effects of plant-derived compounds on chronic diseases, particularly insulin resistance, chronic inflammation, neuroinflammation and cancer. She uses modern research tools such as in silico computation, modelling and ADMET approaches for rational lead discoveries from plant species and whole genome transcriptomics for the elucidation of action mechanisms. In her studies, she also uses in vitro screening and in vivo assays, spectrometry, bioinformatics, biochemistry and molecular biology tools to identify bioactive phytochemicals and to study their biological effects and mode of action. Since 2016, Dr. Tumer is working on strigolactones (SLs), which are a novel class of carotenoid-derived lactone molecules, and their potential health benefits in chronic diseases by using in vitro, in vivo and in silico approaches.
