The Neuroscience Master’s with Thesis Program at Koc University, which allows students from many different branches to meet neuroscience, aims to conduct versatile and high-impact researches by teaching the basic elements and research methods of neuroscience and to train qualified researchers who can do such research in the future.

Ultimately, the field of neuroscience is in a close relation with neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, anesthesiology and algology, neuropathology, neuroradiology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, clinical neurophysiology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, and algology, especially with some of the medicine fields related with central nervous system diseases.

By collaborating with the existing laboratories in the relevant fields within the faculties operating at Koç University, researchers from different disciplines are also provided with the opportunity to develop any new treatment options, medicines and medical devices for diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and control, mitigation and prevention of neuroscience diseases.
