Description

Advertisement

Medical Microbiology primarily deals with microorganisms which cause diseases in humans. The major working fields are the structures of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, growth properties of microorganisms, pathogenic strategies they develop, diagnostic approaches to infectious diseases and efficiency of antimicrobial agents used for therapy. These phenomena are studied using morphological methods based on optical microscopy, fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy and various cultivation methods and molecular techniques.

The proposed Medical Microbiology Masters of Science Program at Koc University offers a comprehensive training to the graduates who are planning to work in the field of medical microbiology or continue to Doctor of Philosophy programs in the same area.

The candidates of the program with a Bachelor's Degree in Health Sciences and Natural Sciences are expected to be equipped with combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in laboratory methods and applications in the light of latest technological approaches.
