Organized by the Istanbul Yeni Uzil University Forensic Medicine Education and Service Laboratory, Ionina University and the Istanbul Archaeological Museum, the International Congress of Biomedical Sciences was organized by the International Congress of Biomedical Sciences with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and ICVB.
Leading researchers from around the world and Turkey took part in the Hybrid Congress held at the Istanbul Archaeological Museum Library. Signs of human history were explored in this congress, which was held for the purpose of researching and propagating the civilizations established by world civilization for today’s technology. To Congress for interdepartmental work; Participants from disciplines such as medicine, history of medicine, biological archeology, medicine and molecular genetics, paleopathology, archeology, physical anthropology and archeology; He discusses how people get sick and are treated, what causes bacterial epidemics, when tooth decay begins due to human eating habits, migration and kinship relationships.
All fields of science work with archaeologists. ”
The fourth congress was held with an international organization, said Professor Dr. Dr. Ersi Abacı Kalfooglu says, “We have a lot to learn from archeology. Human history is evolving and if we know the information about the process of its development, we will have a projection about the future. We get information about the current time. Archaeologists do just that. They have very good cooperation. In other words, they have great advantages at the moment. Because all fields of science work together with archaeologists. All departments of medicine, chemistry, biology, genetics and science work with them. These areas also support archaeologists. So much so that they can find answers to a lot of information in this collaboration that they have not been able to find in previous years. That is why this Congress is so important and meaningful. Teams working on technology and health came together for a month. The results of what has been done and what can be done have been published, “he said.
Talking about the relationship between biomedical science and archeology, Kalfolu said, “Research on this topic was presented at our Congress. Why? In ancient times, why did people get sick, why did they die? We can investigate them. Whether the bones found in a grave belong to the same family, whether they came from the same lineage, our Congress presented world-class research. Our Congress was organized as a hybrid. In addition to our researchers here, we also had many researchers who presented them online. ” It says, “Now our age is based on interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary studies.” Scientists need to learn this. This Congress is a very good indicator of that, “he concluded.
Archeology is mainly in collaboration with other scientific fields like chemistry, biology, geography.
Ozgul Ozkan Yavuz, Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism of the Turkish Republic, said: “Today, archeology largely collaborates with other scientific fields, such as chemistry, biology and geography. In this way, we can test our theories and get clear information about historical facts. At the meeting, important scientists and researchers will discuss new approaches to biological archeology in various fields, as well as new initiatives for research based on international cooperation. Our Ministry of Culture and Tourism strongly supports archeological research, on the other hand, it attaches great importance to international cooperation. There are still 680 archeological excavations in our country. Although these are mostly run by Turkish universities, there are collaborations with foreign universities. On the other hand, archaeologists, art historians and other scientists working in our archeological museum also support this point. “
