Invitation

Dear Colleagues and Sector Representatives,

The XV National Congress of Medical Biology and Genetics will be held at the Liberty Hotels Lykia World Resort in Fethiye Ölüdeniz between 26 - 29 October 2017. The most important event of the Conference on Medical Biology and Genetics, which is organized by our association, is held with international participation.

Since the foundation of our association, we are proud to have continued to organize our congress that has both scientific and socially satisfying qualities. The national congress organized by our Association has drawn a successful figure thanks to more than 500 members with a continuous increase in both the number of submitted papers and the number of participants.

Taking into consideration the fact that our congresses have a large student participation, we’ll provide 25 participants with scholarship and transportation cost in accordance with the decision of our association's registration in our 25th year as we traditionalized in 15th congress.

As usual, in the XV Congress, as well as the award given in honoring the founder of our community Prof. Dr. Altan Günalp, independent paper and poster awards will also be given.

We will have the chance to witness with our esteemed colleagues October 29th Republic Ball which has become a tradition in the congress, where we will be able to discuss the issues that have been going on for many years in the field of Medical Biology and Genetics.

I would be honored to invite you to our congress in Ölüdeniz Fethiye between 26 - 29 October 2017, where we will have a scientific and socially satisfying program.

Kind Regards,

Prof. Dr. Turgut Ulutin
Head of Medical Biology and Genetics Association
