Basar Bilgicer is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and a concurrent assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame. After receiving his bachelor degree in chemistry at Bogazici University, he moved to Boston in 1999 to pursue his PhD in chemistry at Tufts University where he designed and studied peptides that incorporated unnatural amino acids for enhanced stability and selectivity in protein-protein association. His work, which was published in the top tier journals in his field, has been highlighted in several popular media outlets including Chemical and Engineering News. He was honored with a research excellence award as well as an outstanding academic achievement award by Tufts University. After earning his PhD degree in 2004, he moved to George Whitesides group in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University. During this time, he focused on developing a better understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics of multivalent interactions in biological systems, specifically on association of bivalent antibodies with multivalent antigens. His research program at Notre Dame is founded on his expertise in bioengineering, biophysical chemistry, synthetic chemistry, and targeted drug delivery. As part of his research program, his group is using the principles of multivalent biomolecular interactions to design therapeutic agents with enhanced targeting selectivity in cancers such as multiple myeloma, breast and ovarian cancer.
