“In my spare time, I enjoy playing volleyball and swimming,” said Dr. Gokalp Yasar. “At every opportunity, I like to take the kids for outdoor activities. We are all learning skiing, and enjoying biking and hiking.”

Dr. Gokalp Yasar’s professional interests include research on breast cancer, immunotherapy and lung cancer. She is currently the activity director for local cardiothoracic and breast tumor boards.
