When these and such problems are observed, our RaDiChal founding director Dr. Cihan Taştan seek for a way out to individuals with rare diseases and to lead different studies in order to find a cure.
RaDiChal start up organizes international competitions for university teams, aiming to develop novel gene therapies for the thousands of the rare diseases.

RaDiChal 2020 made me feel useful, especially in a difficult process such as Covid-19 pandemic conditions. It enabled me to look at the events from a different perspective and get rid of the passive listening position and become an active learner throughout our education life.
It was the greatest happiness to be on the same platform with Cihan Taştan, who I love very much. Again, I would like to support every idea and be on this platform. Radichal gave me patience and determination to be able to hope for families.
