Dr. Tolga Çukur is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, the National Magnetic Resonance Research Center (UMRAM), and the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Bilkent University. Dr. Çukur's research is targeted at understanding the anatomy and function of biological systems in both normal and disease states. To this end, he develops cutting-edge imaging and computational methods for biomedical research. He designs ultra-fast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques for targeted diagnosis of vascular, musculoskeletal and neurological diseases. On the neuroscientific front, he uses functional MRI and modern statistical tools to study the function of human sensory and cognitive systems during complex natural behavior.
