Dr Bilge Ercan
The University of Sydney
Bilge is a protein/lipid scientist who studies the molecular mechanisms of how proteins sense and transport lipids in cells. She has extensive experience in protein overexpression and purification from bacterial cells, biochemical characterization of lipid-protein interactions, and reconstitution of lipid transport in vitro. Her work provides important insights into lipid recognition and transport mechanisms cells use to maintain lipid homeostasis.
