Alexander Turkin, PhD Consultant

Alexander Turkin attended the National University of Kharkiv, where he obtained a BSc degree in physics. He subsequently participated in the TopMaster programme in Nanoscience at the University of Groningen. Alexander’s long-standing fascination by the world of Life Sciences, combined with his multidisciplinary training led him to pursue a PhD in biophysics. As a PhD-researcher, Alexander developed and for the first time implemented a concept of biochemical reaction acceleration by allowing the binding partners to slide along DNA and by using DNA as a catalyst. Subsequently, he applied this concept to improve several biotechnological and pharmacological systems.

As a consultant of ttopstart, Alexander aspires to create impact in research and biotech by bringing innovators together and developing new projects with them hand in hand to advance innovation and create life-changing technologies.
