Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering Molecular Biology and Genetics Program Overview

At the beginning of the 21st century, novel technologies are allowing us to make exciting new discoveries and obtain detailed knowledge of how molecules, cells, tissues, and organisms operate. These advances are changing the way in which we diagnose and treat human disease. In light of these developments, it is crucial that we educate today’s students about biology at the molecular level. Koç University’s Molecular Biology and Genetics Graduate Program succeeds in providing broad and deep education in the biological sciences. The Molecular Biology and Genetics Graduate Program offers advanced cell and molecular biology and genetics courses as well as electives in areas, such as cancer biology, neuroscience, and bioinformatics. Students in the Molecular Biology and Genetics program will engage in experimental research by working with faculty members in their dynamic research programs. The program will prepare students for careers in areas including: academia, pharmaceutical discovery and development, biotechnology, environmental sciences, food quality control, and forensics.
