Our traditional “10th of November IBG Science Day”, organised each year to commemorate the founder of the republic Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk with science, was held with a hybrid format, allowing science lovers to come together at IBG and online.
The event, held live at Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center’s Aziz Sancar Auditorium, was attended by esteemed participants and guests, and it was also streamed live on IBG’s YouTube channel, which gave the chance for many other viewers to watch the event from their offices, homes and schools.
On this significant day realised thanks to the devoted work of the IBG Management and 10th of November IBG Science Day Event Committee as well as the valuable support of our participants, we commemorated Atatürk on the 83rd anniversary with the never-ending thrill of science. We enjoyed the day to the full together with our viewers who joined us online.
Due to great interest, the recording of the event will be kept on our IBG YouTube channel, so that science lovers can access it from the following link whenever they want.
