Hakan Berk Aydin is graduated from the Department of Chemistry at Izmir Institute of Technology in July 2020.
He is currently conducting his research into assay development in nucleic acid tests, specific bioApp design, polymer synthesis, and surface chemistry.
He has created android apps called “BioRGB”. BioRGB uses for colorimetric detection, and it has been utilized for screening of HBV and Dengue Fever. Its algorithm and methodology speed the determination of infectious disease at off-field conditions.
Aydin has received the 3rd prize in The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK)’s 2242-Software Contest with the application “BioRGB”.
BioRGB has had a huge impact on national news agencies, with most national TV news and newspapers mentioned it.
Aydin has been a member of Prof. Ashutosh Chilkoti’s Chilkoti Lab for 6 months (Feb ’18 – Aug 18) as a Visiting Research Scholar at Duke University.
He mostly focused on Point of Care Tests and mastering many techniques, including SI-ATRP (Surface-Initiated Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization) and immunoassay fabrication, to name a few.
