Biography

I am currently Professor of Chest Medicine at Ege University Hospital, Bornova, Izmir, Turkey. My main interests are interstitial lung diseases, sarcoidosis and pulmonary hypertension.  I run a regional referral centre for PAH and ILD at Ege University Hospital. I am on the steering committees of the Empire registry for IPF and the Turkish national registry for UIP. I gained experience in the Heart and Lung Transplantation Unit and the North West Lung Research Centre, both being at the University Hospital of South Manchester, UK, between March l998 and January 2001.  At that time, I was working under the guidance of Dr. J. Egan, the lead transplant and ILD chest physician in the department. Over 2000 patients have been managed at Ege for interstitial lung disease by a multidisciplinary team.  They have a wide range of specific diagnoses. I participate in a number of phase II and III trial.  I am the top recruiter for the EMPIRE Registry, having submitted 700 patients.
