Forensic Chemistry and Forensic Toxicology Master's Degree - Mission and Vision

The Institute of Addiction and Forensic Sciences, established on April 9, 2016, aims to be a first in our country in terms of vision and mission. As the Department of Forensic Sciences, with nine different specialties (Forensic Chemistry, Forensic Pharmacology and Toxicology, Forensic Biology, Forensic Genetics, Crime Scene Investigation and Criminalistics, Forensic Information Crimes, Forensic Psychology, Crime Prevention and Analysis) In addition to providing postgraduate education and training of international quality to graduates from almost every undergraduate field, it aims to meet the basic needs of our country in justice services, addiction and crime prevention; to prevent the victimization of the individual, family and society, to prove the crime and the criminal with modern technologies in a way that leaves no room for doubt, to develop new technologies in these fields and to train practitioner, educator and researcher forensic scientists equipped with advanced knowledge, understanding and skills to conduct scientific research that will prevent our country from being dependent on foreign countries. The PhD Program in Forensic Sciences aims to prepare participants for a successful education and research career in national and international academic platforms with high quality in different fields of forensic sciences, modeling the integration of theory, research and practice in this field. The program offers an infrastructure that aims to provide theoretical and in-depth criminal investigations skills.

Forensic chemistry is a sub-discipline of forensic science that involves the application of scientific principles and techniques to analyze and interpret physical evidence in legal investigations. The education in the Department of Forensic Chemistry and Forensic Toxicology combines the principles of chemistry, biology and physics to examine evidence such as drugs, trace substances, fingerprints and firearm residues. Forensic chemists use a variety of analytical techniques such as spectroscopy, chromatography and microscopy to identify substances and determine their composition and origin. This information can then be used to link suspects or victims to a crime scene, provide evidence to the court and contribute to the overall investigation process.

Forensic toxicology is a branch of forensic science that involves the analysis and interpretation of toxic substances such as drugs and poisons in biological samples. It focuses on determining the presence and concentration of these substances in various body fluids, tissues and organs. Forensic toxicologists play a crucial role in cases where drug or poison involvement is suspected, such as drug-related deaths, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and workplace or environmental exposures. They use advanced analytical techniques such as gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify and quantify these substances. The results of forensic toxicology analyses are used in legal proceedings where death, motor skills and behavioral changes are at issue.

Overall, forensic chemists and forensic toxicologists play a vital role in criminal investigations, using their scientific expertise to provide accurate and unbiased analysis of physical and/or biological evidence. Their work contributes to the justice system by providing important information that can help identify perpetrators, support legal cases and ensure the integrity of the criminal justice process.

The forensic chemistry and toxicology master's program typically includes a series of courses covering various aspects of both disciplines.

The Master's Program in the Department of Criminal Justice focuses on the supervision and prevention of crime and aims to develop students' capacities to improve the conditions and functions of the criminal justice system in place by viewing crime as a social problem. It focuses on developing analytical thinking skills, ethical approach and problem solving abilities. It aims to encourage them to develop new solutions to prevent crime, which is the most important and difficult problem of our time.

The aim of the education in the Department of Biosafety is to train experts specialized in understanding, proving and preventing biological threats that are increasingly important in today's world. Its interdisciplinary program is a model of research and education focusing on critical issues at the intersection of health, science and security. The courses cover the scientific basis of biosecurity, the technologies used and likely to be used in this field, applications for the prevention and elucidation of bioterrorist attacks, national and international legal regulations, as well as the knowledge and skills to evaluate the risks posed by bioattacks on public health and safety, and to create strategies to prepare large masses for biological attacks and to cope with stress and fear.
