The experts state that fish consumption has a preventative and curative effect on cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, depression, and mental diseases, and they strongly urge people to eat fish.
HISTORICAL BUILDINGS IN 3 DIMENSIONS
Ancient cities are coming back to life in 3 dimensional virtual models. Ruins of monuments and buildings emerging from the depths of history reach the spectacular look of their era in virtual models in the hands of engineers of Izmir University of Economics. Students Onur Kaya, Mert Ertekin and Graduate Emre Mutlu of Department of Computer Engineering, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), modelled the ancient city of Agora, Izmir under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Gazihan Alankuş. Interested parties will be able to view the ancient city with their smart phones and with 3D virtual reality glasses.
PRODUCING ECO-FRIENDLY NANOPARTICLES FROM MICROALGAE
Microalgae, which are microscopic algae, typically found in freshwater and marine systems, living in both the water column and sediment and are capable of performing photosynthesis, will be used in face moisturizers and in shrinking the cancerous cells. Scientists’ researches on microalgae will enable them to produce nanoparticles and conduct further research for their areas of use.
NANOSCALE APPROACH IN TACKLING BIOFILMS
Nanoscale research are underway to tackle bacterial biofilms, which cause repeating ear and tooth infections, foodborne infections, and medical device-related infections. Asst. Prof. F. Pınar Gördesli Duatepe from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), will conduct a nanoscale research within TUBITAK’s 3501 career project in order to prevent bacteria build up and forming of biofilms. Asst. Prof. F. Pınar Gördesli Duatepe will study the levels of adsorption and their surface properties. So that, new ways of tackling the biofilms, which impose a great burden on health system worldwide due to their persistency and high-levels of antibiotic resistance, would be found.
