Mrs Sevban Dogan Ekici
Sevban Doğan Ekici is a Ph.D. candidate in Imaging Chemistry and Biology at King's College London, where she is supervised by Prof. Antony D. Gee, Dr. Rafael T. M. de Rosales, Dr. Steven Kealey and Dr. Antonio Shegani. Her research focuses on the synthesis and biodistribution of boron-containing radiotracers, an area of study that is supported by the Turkish Ministry of National Education. She holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemistry from Middle East Technical University (METU) in Türkiye. While pursuing her master's degree, she gained experience working as a part-time graduate student assistant in both the METU Central Laboratory (Solid NMR) and the METU Chemistry Department (Liquid NMR). Additionally, she worked as a chemist at the National Boron Research Institute in Ankara, Turkey, prior to beginning her Ph.D. program.
Sevban’s background in chemistry, coupled with her current research in imaging chemistry and biology, positions her as an expert in the field of boron-containing radiotracers and their potential uses in medical imaging and therapy. She is also a certified Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) for Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Laboratory (CARL) at St Thomas Hospital, KCL, a certified R&D radiochemist in the Positron Emitting Radiotracer Laboratory (PERL), and holds Personal Licence under the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA).
