We are proud and happy to meet you in the second issue of Bezmialem Science this year. First of all, I would like to thank our authors, referees and editorial board who contributed to our journal with their articles. Bezmialem Foundation University is a thematic university in the field of health. Among the foundation universities having faculty of medicine, we have the pride of being in the higher rankings in the URAP (University Ranking by Academic Performance) compared with many universities established before us. We continue our efforts to get a good place among the journals indexed abroad as in our country with your support.

In this issue; the article entitled “ The Effects of Camellia sinensis Extract on Proliferation, Apoptosis and Oxidative Stress in Insulinoma INS-1 Cells” by KACAR et al., the article entitled “Aberrant Methylation Profile and Microsatellit Instability In Turkish Sporadic Colorectal Carcinoma” by EKMEKCI et al., the article entitled “The Role of PET/CT to Detect Bone Marrow Involvement in Hodgkin Lymphoma” by ESER et al., and the article entitled “ Extra-Parenchymal Chest HRCT Findings of Patients With Systemic Sclerosis at The Time of Initial Diagnosis” by UFUK et al. are the articles that are prominent.

Welcome to our new editors who have joined our editorial board from different disciplines and our new scientists who have joined our scientific board and I wish them success in their duties.

Goodbye until we meet again in our next issue.
