r. Ece is associate professor of Chemistry. He received a B.Sc. in chemistry at Hacettepe University, Ankara. He completed his master degree in organic/computational chemistry and obtained his Ph.D. in the field of organic, computational and medicinal chemistry in the same institution. He worked as Research Assistant between the dates 2002-2011 at Hacettepe University. He currently works at Computer-Aided Drug Design Center, Biruni University.
Dr. Ece serves as associate editor of BMC Chemistry - Part of Springer Nature. He received two successive awards from Trinity College Dublin in 2017 and 2018.
Dr. Ece gave several talks as invited speaker at international/national scientific organizations including NATO-ASI Summer School, Training Courses etc. He organizes symposiums and hands-On Training Courses on Computer-Aided Drug Design.
His research group (ECE Research) is mainly focused on the computer-aided drug design & discovery. In that aspect, he uses both quantum chemical and molecular mechanics calculations. Supported by the leading software companies in the field, Ece Research uses effective and specialized computational tools to address a particular problem or to enlighten an experimental finding in medicinal, organic or pharmaceutical chemistry.
He believes that there is no boundaries in different fields of sciences. Scientists should set aside the differences and collaborate with each other. It is the reason that the motto of ECE Research is "Combining Multidisciplinary Research".
