Founder of Centromer DNA Technologies chosen “Most Successful Women Entrepreneur of 2017”


Ms. PINAR AKALIN, Founder of CENTROMER DNA Technologies was chosen “Most Successful Women Entrepreneur of 2017” by Istanbul Economy Summit.

PINAR AKALIN, Centromer –

The story of PINAR AKALIN is as follows:

A young Turkish lady from capital Ankara goes to the USA to study. She decides to study biology at Bridgewater State College and receives degrees in Biology and Chemistry. After several years of working experience in a very important company involved in DNA field she returns to Turkey and takes employment. In 2009 she establishes her company Centromer and despite shortage of capital manages to start a fully equipped molecular genetics and synthesis laboratory with R&D incentives from TUBITAK and KOSGEB.  Today, her company serves more than 500 institutional customers as continuation of the operation she started with the production of synthetic DNA.  Centromer is Turkey’s first large scale synthetic DNA producing company. The company has reduced imports in this area substantially by expanding its product range with technology and methods parallel to Europe and America. The company continues its activities with molecular diagnostic kits and molecular and microbiological laboratory services used in health and food safety.

That is not all though… Ms. AKALIN has been conducting very advanced studies at her labs and aims to accomplish individual and on patient basis applications by carrying all tests developed for labs to biosensor platform. The words almost sound like a text from a science fiction novel or film, don’t they.

Our sincerest (and humble) congratulations as well, to this very VALUABLE scientist, for our country – as well as for humanity.THANKS DEAR LADY.
