The programme

With the recent advances in technologies, we now better understand the molecular and cellular basis of diseases. The new discoveries made in the areas of life sciences and their clinical applications pose an increased and unmet need in training programs that bridge the traditional basic science and medicine. Our CAMM program is suited to fulfill this need and train scientists from diverse backgrounds.

The faculty members of this graduate program are from several different schools including the School of Medicine, Engineering, and Science, located at the main Koç University Campus in Sarıyer and the Health Sciences Campus in Topkapı. Providing a unique interdisciplinary graduate training experience, the faculty members are also globally recognized for their research in cancer, stem cells, vascular biology, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, microbiology, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology.

Preparation for a variety of careers

The CAMM program prepares students for a variety of careers in teaching and research in both academia and industry in Turkey and abroad. With the training gained during the program, the PhD students will develop analytical and scientific thinking skills, learn how to conduct experiments rigorously, publish their own work, and acquire a general understanding of the areas related to their research field.  

The students will also have a strong understanding of the clinical significance and the potential medical applications of their research by having access to stat-of-the-art Koç University Hospital and its clinicians.
