About Us

M2 lab is established in Feb 2022 after Dr. Sahin returned from abroad and started as an assistant professor at Yildiz Technical University. M2 represents medical and mechatronics which are our main focuses on the R&D.

As a new lab, M2 Lab is primarily focused on improving the infrastructure, scientific and funding power. Currently, 1 ERC, 1 Tubitak 3501, 1 Patent, and Tubitak 1001 project is being drafted. With the involvement of such projects, M2 Lab expect to welcome more senior scientists for joining our team from all over the world.

Our students from YTU have already joined our lab, where they can use the established infrastructure and improve their skills and project portfolio.

We will be keeping our website updated as soon as we make any progress on our scientific journey.

About

Our Key Interests

Our leader, Dr. Sahin, had opportunities to work on different projects which had various differences as funding, topic, and expertise wise. Our experiences consisted, state, E.U. and private funded projects which was mainly based but not limited to ophthalmological technology development. This continued with medical device production and development experience, under the newly established MDR and CE marking process. Furthermore, several consultancy support were provided to various medical companies whose details are secured under NDA.

Our key goal is to create a unique environment where we can unite multi-disciplinary teams and projects. Our main focus is optomechatronic system design and ophthalmology. However, with our department, partners and students, we are creating projects in various areas of mechanics, electronics, software and medical device development.

M2 Lab aims to collaborate with our old and new professional network and establish more E.U. or Tubitak funded projects

Our Lab Structure

M2 Lab is structured under 4 categories. Our youngest members are the apprentice candidates. These are our freshman, sophomore, or junior students of the Department of Mechatronics of the Yıldız Technical University. Our candidates dedicate their free time for creating basic mechatronic projects. Their main focus is creating practical hands-on knowledge.

The second group of students is our apprentices which are usually our junior or senior students. Our apprentices work on a specific project for their "mechatronic system design class" or "Graduation Project".

Our last student group is the Seniors. As mentioned above M2 Lab is newly established and creating funding for new projects. Our seniors will be hired by such projects and will be MSc or Ph.D. students. Their main time will be dedicated to their E.U. or State funded projects as well as supporting the M2 Lab, and its apprentices and candidates.

The Leader

Onurcan Sahin

Dr. Sahin holds physics engineering BSc and mechanical engineering MSc degree which both were received from Istanbul Technical University. He completed his Ph.D. degree in the institute of vision and optics at the University of Crete, school of medicine. In this step, he worked on European Union funded project which was called as “OPAL”.

Furthermore, he was a member of the multidisciplinary team of Prof. Ioannis Pallikaris who is also known inventor or father of the LASIK technique. Dr. Sahin and prof. Pallikaris worked on several projects afterwards.

Dr. Sahin also worked in the Dunyagoz Hospital group in several positions such as R&D manager and Biomedical.

His last project was a privately funded project for a product that the IP rights belonged to himself and prof Pallikaris. This project consisted several challenges from securing IP rights to securing funding. Establishing a company, to the creation of production infrastructure. Producing a prototype to certification of the product. In summary, a complete challenge from an idea to the final product.

Currently, Dr. Sahin is working as an assistant professor in the department of mechatronics of Yildiz Technical University and founder of m2 lab. More detailed information can be accessed here.
