Duygu EGE

Rank & Status: 

Assistant Professor

Biography: 

Duygu Ege has a PhD in Medical Materials from University of Cambridge and a MEng degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Imperial College, London. Her research so far concentrated on biomaterials including bioceramics and polymer based composites for non-load bearing and load bearing bone replacement applications. Her research on production and characterisation of bone screws at ETH Zurich, lead her to receive the Centenary Prize from Imperial College, London (2009). Her other awards include Dorothy Hodgkins Scholarship leading to PhD at University of Cambridge, Best Podium Presentation Award by International Society for Ceramics in Medicine and IDEA League Grant for her research work at ETH Zurich.
