In every speech I made, I said that our competitors are not the universities in our country, but the world’s leading universities. We believe that we should be among the top 500 universities in the world in the short term and the top 100 universities in the long term. I drew attention and asked all my colleagues to take action in this direction.Now I am happy to be ranked 141st in Biomedicine and Health, and 449th in All Sciences, among the world’s respected universities in the CWTS Leiden Ranking 2023 Ranking.

This success is the product of a great accumulation that walks into the future with its past. This success is the success of our noble and determined staff who are interlocked with the family spirit. This is just the beginning and we are very close to our goals, thank you. I am honored and proud of the achievements of our university, which is dedicated to the path of science and science with all its staff. I would like to thank everyone, especially my academic and administrative colleagues, who contributed. Our work and success will continue with permanence and permanence.”
