Ayşegül Mendi, PhD, is biologist expert on mesnchymal stem cells and probiotics studying at Gazi University, Faculty of Dentistry Department of Medical Microbiology. Her PhD was focused on probiotics, their exopolysaccharide production, antioxidant activity, antiproliferative effect on cancer cell lines, and immunological repsonses against inflammation. Post doctoral studies are orientated to oral microflora and dental mesenchymal stem cells. Toll like receptor expression and modulation of immune responses against oral pathogens were studied. Also, osteogenic differentiation with plant extracts are studying too.
