TURKCE TIBBI TERIMLER

TURKCE TIBBI TERIMLER

Tibbi terimlerin Ingilizce yazilislarini Turkce olarak okumak ve buna "tibbi terminoloji" demek gulunctur.
Hastanin ne kadar omru oldugunu sormak icin "survey´i ne kadar" demenin, "intestinal bir patoloji identifiye edildi" demenin acinasi bir ozentilikten mi yoksa Turkce tibbi terim eksikliginden mi kaynaklandiginin uzerinde durulmasi gerekir.
En cok Ingilizce baskisi altinda ezilen bilgisayar muhendisleri , mesleki dillerini gelistirmede ve Turkcelestirmede cok basarili oldular.
software: yazilim
hardware: donanim
komputer: bilgisayar
Tibbi terimlerin de sadelestirilmesi ve Turkcelestirilmesi gerekir.
Ingilizce terimleri Turkce gibi okumak ve buna tibbi ifade tarzi demek cok yanlistir. Bu sadece hastalarin Ingilizce bilme ve sizi anlama oraninin dusuklugunun acik bir ifadesidir.
Bunun yanisira USMLE 2.basamak CS sinavinda lenfadenopati yerine swollen glands demek gerektigini, ultrasound in ne oldugunu aciklamak gerektigini belirtmekte de fayda var. Sinavda da goruldugu uzere terimlerin hastaya en acik sekilde aciklanmasi tesvik edilmektedir. Anlasilmayan terimlerin ardina saklanmak yerine , hastalarin olup bitenler ve yapilacaklar hakkinda bilgilendirilmesi daha dogrudur.
Bu konuda uzerimize dusen Turkce tibbi terim hazinemizin gelistirilmesidir.
Bu konu basliginin amaci tibbi terim onerilerimizi paylasmak ve sozu edilen terimleri kullanima sokmaktir.

otoscope- Ohrspiegel= kulak aynasi, kulak gostergeci
diyapozon= tuning fork= titresim catali

oftalmoskop= goz gostergeci

anksiyolitik=anxiolytic=Angstausloesend= endise giderici

International Masters in Molecular Bioengineering


Molecular Bioengineering


20th century physics and biology took science to the atomic and molecular level. To meet today’s technological challenges we have to follow this trend and move from micro- to nano-technology. At this level of spatial resolution, technology meets biology. The machines in our cells and in all life on earth are nano-machines encoded in a genetic language. These nano-machines provide functionality at a much smaller scale, greater efficiency, consuming less energy and creating less pollution as is currently possible with micro-technologies. We have to understand how to engineer such cellular machines.


Curriculum

To realise this vision of molecular bioengineering, the Masters course brings a novel combination of biology, biochemistry, biophysics, materials science, medical science, bioinformatics and nanotechnology together.

The Masters course aims to teach students the fundamentals in biomedicine and bio-nanotechnology combining biology and technology, which are linked in two ways: On the one hand, biological knowledge on cells is applied to develop the notion of molecular factories; on the other hand, nano-technology and bioinformatics are enabling technologies applicable to engineer biomaterials for medical applications.

The modules taught in the first three semesters fall into two categories: biomedical and technological modules: The biomedical modules comprise genomics, proteomics, chemistry with bio-molecules, molecular tissue-engineering and biomaterials and the technological modules include bioinformatics, bio-nanotechnology, biophysics and cellular machines. Besides the lectures, there is a seminar series in which students leading researchers present the state-of-the-art and their current research results relevant to the course. Furthermore, there is a module on public and economic aspects of bioengineering, which discusses ethical and jurisdictional issues, patenting, and how to found and lead biotechnoloigal companies. After covering these modules the students devote the last of the four semesters to a thesis.


The modules

Teachers and Facilities

The degree is hosted by the Biotechnological Centre and all professors of the centre teach on the course. Additionally, there are teachers from several institutes of the university and the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. The course takes mostly place in the BioZ, which contains state-of-the-art lab facilities, computer rooms, and lecture theatres.


TU Dresden

The Technical University of Dresden (TUD) is one of the top 10 universities in
Germany and is justifiably proud of its fine tradition in education and the state of the art facilities that resulted from the modernization after the German reunification in 1990. New faculties have been added to the traditional faculties of sciences and engineering including economics, humanities, social sciences and medicine. As a result the range of research possibilities and courses now offered by the TUD is broad and perfectly suited for interdisciplinary graduate studies like the Masters course in Molecular Bioengineering.

Over 9,000 members of staff, including 800 professors and senior lecturers ensure the high standards of teaching and research that have established the TUD´s reputation and attracted 30,000 students. 3,000 of them are international students from about 100 different countries. The ratio between staff and students is very competitive and this makes for a more personal atmosphere and excellent studying conditions.


Studying in Dresden



Although Dresden was largely destroyed during the second world war, it is still nicknamed "
Florence on the Elbe": The sumptuous art collections and impressive monumental buildings have given the city world-wide fame. Dresden is also a research and science city, as well as an important industrial stronghold. Yet first and foremost, it is a first-rate city of culture, with world-famous ensembles such as the Saxon State Opera, the State Chapel and the Kreuzchor singers.

The river
Elbe divides Dresden into the old city and the new city. In the old city on the left banks of the Elbe, famous buildings and interesting sights are lined up: the Zwinger, the Green Vault, the Painting Gallery, the castle, the Semper Opera, the Court Chapel, Taschenberg Palace, the Dresden Church of our Lady (Frauenkirche), which is still undergoing restoration, the Brühlsche Terrasse. All of these can are easy to reach on foot. The new city, on the other hand, exudes an aura of middle-class baroque and shows what Dresden was like during the industrial revolution. The large district, dating back to the industrial revolution, between Bautznerstrasse and Priessnitzstrasse, Bischofsweg and Königsbrücker Strasse features many lovingly restored buildings that contrast with the old, dilapidated houses. Äusseren Neustadt, Dresden's 'in' district, has particularly appealing contrasts: colourful and exclusive shops, fine and simple restaurants, narrow streets with pubs, restaurants, bars and clubs.

There are three remarkable castles on the Elb slope between
Albert Bridge and Blauem Wunder: Albrechtsberg Castle, Lingner Castle and Eckberg Castle. Pillnitz Castle and Moritzburg Castle in the surrounding region, are also well worth a visit. The Elb Valley extends around Saxony's capital city and is one of the most beautiful river landscapes in Europe.
