Molecular Biology and Genetics is one of the fastest-growing disciplines of our century, which has emerged with the development of genetics, biochemistry and cell biology, which has become popular recently. Mankind has been interested in living beings like himself for centuries and investigated how they came to the world, how they lived and multiplied. With the completion of the Human Genome Project and the parallel rapid development in different disciplines, this interest has no longer been a mere curiosity, and the information produced has become an important driving force in many sectors including health, environment, agriculture, animal husbandry and energy. All modern biotechnological products are based on knowledge in molecular biology and genetic engineering applications. "Acıbadem Healthcare Group" companies, one of the leading groups in the field of health in our country, provide students with interdisciplinary observation, research and application opportunities thanks to its medical faculty, vocational school, hospitals and advanced clinical laboratories such as genetics, molecular genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, stem cell laboratories using advanced technologies. offers. The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics is an important starting point for educating students as scientists who invent, research, develop and apply, thanks to this driving force of science.
Experts trained in the field of Molecular Biology and Genetics are limited in our country. The department aims to train researchers who aim to exchange information and cooperate among universities in the globalizing world of science. For this purpose, students are encouraged to participate in national and international congresses by supporting their studies and experience abroad through foreign student exchange programs. The continuation of the students to the postgraduate programs of important universities in America and Europe is motivated, and the graduate programs opened in this field contribute to the training of scientists (doctoral researchers) that our country needs.
The opening of the "Molecular Biology and Genetics Department" in our university will not only increase Turkey's knowledge in this field and its recognition in the scientific world, but also contribute to closing the well-equipped manpower gap that our country's health sector needs. The most important difference that distinguishes the department from its peers is that it focuses on clinical applications as well as basic science research, and while doing this, its students can benefit from the opportunities of Acıbadem University and Acıbadem Healthcare Group. Thanks to the state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and physical infrastructure, the world's leading studies, especially in the field of health, are provided in the journey from the laboratory to the clinic.
Students who complete their education can work as researchers in legal and private institutions such as universities and research centers. They can work as experienced staff in medical faculties such as diagnosis and treatment centers of genetic diseases, in the health sector, in areas that require biotechnology such as food and agriculture, and in many laboratories, including transgenic animal production.
