Creating the necessary niche for biotechnology R&D in the country, which is one of the main objectives of the Biotechnology Institute, requires diligent work over a long period of time. Scientific research in biotechnology, whose final output consists of applications and products, relies on basic and life sciences. New knowledge paves the way for new products.
Research groups led by Prof. Alp Can and Prof. Aykut Özkul, who have served as director, vice director, and members of the Institute’s founding board, have designed and developed important products related to human and animal health with the help of knowledge made possible by support from the Biotechnology Institute.
Ankara University Biotechnology Institute continues to rely on high quality and competitive scientific research in trying to generate new knowledge and products.
