Course content

The Graduate School of Heath Sciences of Koç University offers a 2-year MSc program in reproductive biology and a 4-year PhD program in reproductive medicine, both of which aim to provide modern up-to-date biological research in the field of reproductive sciences at molecular and cellular levels in an inspiring, challenging and vibrant research atmosphere, at the interface between basic science and clinical patient care.

A thorough understanding of reproductive functioning in both sexes at molecular level using a wide range of experimental models, and studying at translational level a number of important problems associated with human reproductive health and disease in testis, ovary, the uterus during the menstrual cycle and throughout pregnancy and labour, in the fetus and neonate, and in fetal programming resulting in increased risk of chronic disease in adulthood are the major goals of the programmes.

As a result of rapid advances in life science technology and medicine at molecular level, reproductive sciences have evolved into four different disciplines as Reproductive biology, Reproductive endocrinology (Embryology and assisted reproduction technologies), Reproductive immunology and Reproductive genetics. Both MSc and PhD students will undertake some core teaching and conduct research projects, performed on this very wide range of research fields within the reproductive sciences.
