About me

  • Fulya Taylan is an associate professor (docent in Swedish) in medical
    genetics at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. She also serves as
    the coordinator for the precision medicine and diagnostics research area in
    the Data-driven Life Science (DDLS) initiative. Additionally, she chairs the
    working group for harmonization of bioinformatics pipelines for somatic
    variant analysis in the Genomic Medicine Sweden (GMS) initiative, coordinates
    the diagnostic working group in the Undiagnosed Disease Network International
    (UDNI), and the Childhood Cancer Predisposition (ChiCaP) project within the
    GMS initiative.
    Her research focuses on understanding the cancer predisposition to childhood
    cancers and identifying novel disease-causing genes in patients with rare
    undiagnosed diseases. Prior to her work at Karolinska Institutet, Taylan was
    a postdoctoral researcher at SciLifeLab in Stockholm. There, she analyzed
    exome sequencing data and collaborated on several projects to identify novel
    disease-causing genes. Taylan earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Molecular
    Biology and Genetics from Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey.
