ESTEM and AvciBio Research Group participated in Eskişehir Industry Fair 2022, the 2nd R&D Industry and Technology Fair held at Eskişehir Chamber of Commerce- TÜYAP Fair Center on October 18-21, 2022, to present innovative health related products from our laboratories.
During COVID-19 pandemic as all of us faced changing and expanding scope of the defense industry in Turkiye and in the world, like this pandemic is not just as a health problem; at the same time, the similar pandemic or chemical and biological threats probably we will face in the future at some degree. These threats as global problems in the axis of society, security, economy, culture and politics, places the issue of biosecurity in the focus of the defense sector, while at the same time expanding the scope of the defense industry with new security parameters. In this sense, the importance of innovative products in the field of health is becoming more and more important.
