Final year project (graded 76%)
• My project outlines how the conjugation of synthetic, fusogenic, GALA peptide to the exterior of self-assembling peptide cages (SAGEs) which encase therapeutic compounds, can facilitate their endosomal escape.
• Evaluated the use of GALA by exploring the issue of endosomal entrapment of SAGE particles through the available literature, critically analysing information pertaining to this problem, such as the current methods involving the ‘proton-sponge effect’.

Formulation Scientist, May 2020 – Present

Using my initiative, proven data-driven approaches and following standard operating protocols as a scientist at Catalent, I am involved in developing drug candidates into first-in-man studies and advancing them into formulated products. My role is predominantly laboratory based; where I plan and execute feasibility studies to produce GLP pharmaceutical products which involves operating a series of high-tech equipment, such as the viscometer. I am also responsible for presenting experimental findings to clients as well as compiling technical documents on the operation of equipment, such as the particle size analyser.

My daughter has really benefited from her lessons with Firat. She came into the lessons with specific issues to discuss and Firat was able to clarify them with ease. I would highly recommend Firat if you have issues with your Physics GCSE.

Firat has been so so helpful in helping me with my biology for an exam I am soon to take. He makes sure to cover everything in detail and asks lots of questions to ensure my understanding is thorough. He encourages me to answer exam questions and guides me to the right place to find them. Firat remains professional whilst also being very friendly and approachable, I am not afraid to ask him ‘silly questions’ or ask him to explain something for me again, he’s so patient and I couldn’t recommend him enough.

Firat has been an excellent tutor, he explains everything in detail, which means that I can recall this information in exams as I understand topics to a greater depth. Firat also sets exam questions after each session, which allow me to test my understanding and solidify my knowledge, and is quick to respond if you have questions to ask. Overall, a very positive experience, and would definitely recommend.
