Uğur Tamer is a Professor of Pharmacy Faculty at Gazi University in Turkey. He received Ph.D.
degree in 2003 at Hacettepe University Department of Analytical chemistry. Under the mentorship of
Professor Dr. Kadir Pekmez and Professor Dr. Attila Yıldız, his research focused on modified electrodes and conducting polymers. He was involved in Prof. Dr. Harry Mark’s electroanalytical research group as a visiting scholar in the department of chemistry at Cincinnati University in 2002 and he had worked a post-doctoral researcher, working with Professor Curtis Shannon, in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Auburn University in 2005. He was involved in Raman research group as a visiting Professor, at University of Maine, Lemans, France. His research focuses on modified electrodes, electrochemical controlled micro-extraction, enantiomer separations, magnetic and anisotropic nanoparticles, surface modification, Raman spectroscopy and surface enhanced Raman scattering. His research group also constructed a paper based microfluidic surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) device that uses nanoparticle-embedded based microfluidic system to provide SERS-active sites or electrochemical measurements. A microfluidic chip was also constructed using the surface micromachining technique for the determination of bacteria. He is a member of three COST actions. He has published 126 peer-reviewed research papers and 3 book chapters.
