About Doga 

I am a medical doctor from Turkey with a big passion for research. I have done research in neuro-science, as well as conducted a clinical audit in the ENT department of my faculty hospital during my studies. I have completed my medical training in Budapest, Hungary. I have acquired invaluable experience as an international student, during my time working in healthcare in a foreign country. This experience taught me the universal human struggle with illness and the art of connecting with those in need of medical attention.

My Project: Improving imaging of the hypothalamus in children with craniopharyngioma

Improving imaging techniques for childhood craniopharyngioma in order to better predict
the hypothalamic outcome: This project aims to develop improved imaging techniques for visualization of the hypothalamus using 7 Tesla MRI and multi-nuclear metabolic imaging. It can help us to have a better understanding of the hypothalamic region, and predict the extent of damage in patients with craniopharyngiomas, pre- and postoperatively.
