Zeena Hashem, BSc

Research Technician II

Education and Training

I earned my B.Sc. in Genetics and Bioengineering from Istanbul Bilgi university in the year 2021. My journey in biomedical research initially began when I presented my findings on the Effect of Frankincense Essential oil on the telomerase expression of MCF-7 and K-562 cell lines in the INTEL ISEF 2016 science fair. Ever since, I undertook various internships and opportunities to establish a career in biomedical research. I joined the Najafov Lab in September 2022 where my mission will be to gain a better understanding of necropotosis and its significance in developing novel immunotherapies.
