Talk Title: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for the ultrasensitive quantification: metallic nanoparticles versus nanostructured films 

Uğur Tamer is a professor of Pharmacy Faculty at Gazi University in Turkey. He received Ph.D. degree in 2003 at Hacettepe University Department of Analytical chemistry. Under the mentorship of Professor Dr Kadir Pekmez and Professor Dr Attila Yıldız, his research focused on modified electrodes and conducting polymers. He was involved in Prof. Dr. Harry Mark’s electroanalytical research group as a visiting scholar in the department of chemistry at Cincinnati University in 2002 and He had worked a post-doctoral researcher, working with Professor Curtis Shannon, in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Auburn University in 2005. He was involved in Raman research group as a visiting professor, at University of Maine, Lemans, France. His research focuses on modified electrodes, electrochemical controlled micro-extraction, enantiomer separations, magnetic and anisotropic nanoparticles, surface modification and surface enhanced Raman scattering based immunoassay, and paper based microfluidic analytical devices. He is a member of several nanotechnology related COST actions. He has published 98 peer-reviewed research papers and 2 book chapters.
