Hakan Berk Aydin is a candidate for Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Izmir Institute of Technology.


He is currently conducting research in BioSens & BioApps research group’s laboratory to assay development in nucleic acid tests, fabrication of paper-based point of care tools, polymer synthesis, and surface chemistry.


He has created an Android App called “BioRGB”. BioRGB uses for colorimetric detection, and it has been utilized screening of HBV and Dengue Fever. Our algorithm and methodology speed the determination of infectious disease at off-field conditions.


Aydin has received the 3rd prize in TUBITAK (THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL RESEARCH COUNCIL OF TURKEY)’s 2242-Software Contest with the application “BioRGB”.


BioRGB made a huge impact on national news agencies, most of the national TV-news and newspaper have told about it.


Aydin has been a member of the Chilkoti Lab for 6 months (Feb ’18 – Aug ’18) as a Visiting Research Scholar at Duke University.


He mostly focused Point of Care Tests and mastering many techniques, including SI-ATRP (Surface-Initiated Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization) and immunoassay fabrication, to name a few.
