Department’s Brief History

Bursa Uludag University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Medical Genetics was established by Assist. Assoc. Dr Emine Tuna GÜLTEN, Assist. Assoc. Dr Hakan CANGÜL, Res. Assist. Şehime Gülsün TEMEL, Res. Assist. Şener Arıkan, Res. Assist. Tahsin YAKUT in the department of Internal Medicine in 2003. Between 2003 and 2007, Assist. Assoc. Dr Emine Tuna GÜLTEN was the Head of the Department. On 18.10.2010, Assist. Assoc. Dr Hakan CANGÜL has been resigned from the department. Prof. Dr Tahsin YAKUT was the Head of the Department between 01.11.2007 and 02.08.2016. In 2013, “Genetic Diseases Diagnosis Center” license has been obtained by the Ministry of Health. In addition to the ongoing routine diagnostic services, research projects are carried out in many areas. Between the dates 02.08.2016 - 05.07.2017, Assist. Assoc. Dr Emine Tuna GÜLTEN served as the Head of the Department and retired on 20.08.2017. The service started by Şehime Gülsün TEMEL in 2003 and Şebnem ÖZEMRİ SAĞ in 2005 as research assistants are now Assoc. Dr in the department. Assoc. Dr Şehime Gülsün TEMEL has been working as the Head of the Department since 05.07.2017. In 2019, Dr Selcan ZEYBEK started to work in our department. 
There are 2 associate professors, 1 lecturer doctor, 3 research assistants, 8 biologists, 4 technicians and 1 secretary served in our department.
