Ezgi Karaca currently works as an Assistant professor at Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center (Turkey) where she is the Principal Investigator of Karaca Lab. Her research in computational structural biology focuses on integrative modeling, protein dynamics, physical principles of biomolecular interactions by determining (and/or dissecting) the structures of biomolecular complexes as well as developing various computational tools, such as docking, homology modeling, and molecular dynamics. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow (2013-2016) in EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory) and selected for the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship in 2014, for her research on Molecular Basis of Ribosomal RNA Methylation. Dr. Ezgi Karaca awarded with Young Scientist Award (BAGEP) by Science Academy (Turkey) and Installation Grant by EMBO (European Molecular Biology Organization) in 2020. She became a member of the Turkish Medical Informatics Association (TURKMIA) in 2018.
