The idiopathic form of PAH (IPAH), an especially unknown form of the disease, is of interest, and studies have been undertaken to bring this unknown mechanism to light in order to bring alternative therapies for the disease. He also conduct research on STEM CELL and working on applications of the use of STEM CELLS in regenerative medicine.He established the Sugen-5416 PAH rats model in Turkey and has been using these animals for the experiments which can not be performed on human. These studies help to find out the developing mechanisms at the molecular level of disease. He has published these studies in the journals with high impact.
