Division of Preclinical Sciences

The cores of our objective are to develop a contemporary and innovative training about veterinary pathology and provide the students with good communicative skills and help them to gain cognitive recognition and interpretative approach to the scientific issues. Furthermore, to be one of the pioneers in the field of veterinary pathology in terms of providing scientifically significant research and an expeditious, infallible and laboratory service of high quality.

FIELDS OF STUDY

The area of expertise of department includes: To figure out the cause of death in pet animals (dog, cat etc.), farm animals (horse, cattle, sheep and goat and etc.), avian species (poultry, pigeons, exotic bird particularly parrots and etc.) and laboratory animals (rabbit, mice and rats and etc.) on the basis of postmortem findings and microscopic evaluation within the framework of cross-departmental collaboration (microbiology, virology, toxicology and the clinics ); To develop a diagnostic approach for submitted specimens (cytologic or tissue biopsy materials) on the basis of immunohistochemistry, molecular analyses or immunofluorescence as well as a conventional histopathological evaluation; To make a contribution to the experimental animal model of diseseas (of any etiology like infectious, toxicologic, molecular and oncologic) by histopathology or immunohistochemistry. To expertise the cause of death in forensic cases.





Parasitology is a science that deals with the (protozooan, helminths, arthropods) morphological pecularities, life cycles, epizootiology, pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory diagnosis, the prevention, control of the parasites which causes illness in the animals and can be transmited from animals to humans.

FIELDS OF STUDY

In Parasitology Department, protozoan, helminth and arthropods are investigated for the diagnosis of parasitic diseases occurs in animals. In addition, parasites having zoonotic and vectoral importance specimens and intermediate hosts in enviroment are investigated in our laboratories. These protozoans, helminths and arthropods are diagnosed by using classical and molcular methods. We have got a huge archive concerning with parasites to show our students and researchers.





Microbiology is the scientific discipline that examines microbial properties of living beings and their relationship with each other. In Veterinary Microbiology, pathogenic microorganisms in animals, microorganisms that can be transmitted from animals to humans and environmental samples are analyzed.

LABORATORY INFRASTRUCTURE



In our department, 1 routine Diagnostic and Research Laboratory, 1 Poultry Inspection and Diagnostic Laboratory, 3 Molecular Biology Laboratories, 1 Fluorescence Antibody Microscopy Laboratory, 1 Mycology Research Laboratory, 1 Serology and 3 Student Practice Laboratories are located.

FIELDS OF STUDY

In the Department of Microbiology, pathogenic microorganisms in animals, microorganisms that can be transmitted from animals to humans and environmental samples are examined. In our laboratories, bacterial and mycological (fungus) culture, serological diagnosis and molecular diagnosis are currently available.





Pharmacology and Toxicology is the scientific discipline that examines the effects, action mechanisms and treatment principles of veterinary drugs, as well as toxic agents for animals also diagnosis and treatment methods of toxication orginated from these agents.

LABORATORY INFRASTRUCTURE


There are fully equipped cell culture, instrumental analysis, galenic pharmacy and student practice laboratories in our department.

 

FIELDS OF STUDY

Current areas of research investigation in the department include pharmacokinetic and genetic toxicology, as well as we are carrrying out molecularly specific targeted therapy studies that requires advanced technology. It is aimed to provide accurate and reliable results to veterinarians in terms of pharmaceutical industry and drug safety within the content of pharmacokinetics by giving importance to bioequivalance and bioavailability studies. In the field of genetic toxicology, it is aimed to determined mutagenic substances causing genetic damage also cancer risk on next generations and to assess genetic risk potential. Also, in recent years molecular studies relating to medicinal plants and treatment options with medicinal plants are been carried out.





Virology is a scientific discipline that responsible for teaching and researching of viral diseases in animals and viral zoonoses, molecular and serological diagnosis of viral diseases, virus detection and virus isolation methods, genetic analysis of viruses, measurement of developing immunity against viruses and protection methods on the control and eradication of viral diseases.
