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. Furthermore, 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 program succeeds in providing broad, deep, and rigorous education in the biological sciences. 

The Molecular Biology and Genetics programme at Koc University also offers various elective courses for advanced students who wish to focus on specific areas, such as cancer biology, neuroscience, proteomics, and bioinformatics.

The Molecular Biology and Genetics faculty have recently won several prestigious awards, including the ERC Starting Grant, the Turkish Academcy of Sciences Young Scientist Award, the L’Oreal Young Women in Science Award, the EMBO Installation Grant, and the Marie Curie Reintegration Grant.
