Gizem Donmez is proud of her work as a scientist. She has devoted her research to neurodegenerative diseases and hopes to discover new treatments for age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s. Gizem Donmez is currently studying the molecules known as sirtuins, which affect systems in the brain. Gizem Donmez conducts her research and study of sirtuins at the Department of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts.
Gizem Donmez was hired and began work for the university in October of 2011. Devoted to her area of research, Gizem Donmez conducted research and published articles based on her research. As of 2013, Gizem Donmez has successfully published 15 science articles. In 2012, Gizem Donmez was awarded the 2012 New Scholar Award in Aging by the Ellison Foundation in recognition to her work with age-related disease.
Gizem Donmez enjoys her position as Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Tufts University. In the fall of 2013, she will celebrate two full years of work and research at the university’s school of medicine. She joined the university as a tenure track assistant professor after leaving the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was at MIT where Gizem Donmez first began studying sirtuins and their role in the brain of mammals.
Gizem Donmez brings plenty of expertise to her role at Tufts University. She hopes her continued work will one day shed light on neurodegenerative diseases, and on possible new treatments to stop diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Gizem Donmez hopes her work will lead to advanced treatments during her lifetime and her career.
Gizem Donmez enjoys her position as assistant professor of neuroscience. She knows the work she does daily contributes to the scientific understanding of diseases affecting millions of people. Gizem Donmez hopes more eager students will consider science and research as a career choice because of the many lives they can help and save.
