Istinye University hosts the 14th Annual EORTC Pathology Group Meeting of EORTC (European Cancer Research and Treatment Institute), the largest cancer research organization in Europe The conference was attended by researchers from about 22 countries held from September 12 to 14. Experts described the important study of the pathology, depicted as a kitchen of cancer research at the conference, which included the study of the University of Istinye 3.
Major researchers belong to this group
The Dean of the Department of Health Sciences and Director of the Institute of Molecular Cancer (ISUMKAM) spoke about this meeting held in different European cities every year. Dr. Engin Ulukaya, EORTC is a very large organization in the field of cancer. And we have an annual meeting of subgroup pathology at our university. There are speakers from 22 countries. The group's own scientific research is being discussed. There are three areas of study at our university. Our researchers will tell them. We also have 3 different speakers in our country. This is one of the important meetings about cancer. He said it was a meeting of serious researchers from Europe.
Psychology is a cook of cancer research
Provides information about pathology. Dr. Ulukaya, Pathobiology is the kitchen of cancer research. Clinicians, oncologists and pathologists work together. You can produce drugs or test kits. Clinicians use this information for the benefit of their patients. For example, this group of pathology created kits called uPA and PAI-1, which are used to diagnose and treat breast cancer. The kit is currently used worldwide for breast cancer patients, he said.
Pancreatic Cancer Research Can Succeed
Professor Istinye University also talked about the work presented at the conference. Dr. Ulukaya, one of our studies is about pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately this cancer is very deadly. The patient has a very low chance of survival. There are strategies planned by the group for the reasons, and if we come up with the strategy as we think, then the treatment will be much more successful. Didem Karakaş, a researcher at our university, is working on two main TÜBİTAK projects, where she is a director. In addition, the important and new molecular effects of fat in cancer will be explained tomorrow by our university researcher (Burçin Güngör). You can also eat, drink, or get cancer due to environmental factors. It is more common than cancer that occurs genetically. We call it later grades. The impact of this epigenetics on cancer will also be discussed by researchers at our university (Nazlıhan Aztopal).
Drink 7 liters of water and you will die
Even if you spend what you call useful, the professor says it is harmful. Dr. Ulukaya finished his speech as follows:
Smoking should not be approached. Everything you eat is poison. The main thing is the dosage. For example, is water harmful? But if you give 7 liters of water, you will die. You need to eat everything. I think there is nothing to eat.
We are working on breast cancer and tumor
Paul Span, director of the Pathobiology Research Group, which provides general information about EORTC, says it's all types of cancer, not just the main topic. But we are generally studying breast cancer and tumors. There are 90 members from all over Europe. In fact, all working groups are very important. We are very pleased to be in Istanbul. Although it is a new university, we were deeply impressed by this university and its activities. He said that we are very happy to be with our esteemed teachers.
