General Properties of Cell and Cell Examination Methods, Cell Membrane, Cell membrane transport, Apical, lateral and basal surface properties of cell membrane, Cell Skeleton, Extracellular Matrix and Receptors, Nucleus, Nucleolus, Mitochondria, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Ribosome, Golgi, Lysosome and Peroxisome, Vakuol, Sentrosomes and Plastids, Nucleic Acids (DNA) - DNA Replication, Nucleic Acids (RNA and Varieties), Transcription-Translational-Recombination, Cell divisions (mitosis and meiosis)


UB 503  STRUCTURE and DEVELOPMENT of the REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

Learning of the embryological development, macroscopic and microscopic structures of internal and external genital organs constituting the organism and the male and female system and its association with clinic.


UB 502  INFERTILITY and RELATED PATHOLOGIES

Teaching the disorders of structure and function in male and female reproductive systems leading to infertility. Teaching the approach and treatment principles of the infertile couples.


UB 505  SEMİNAR

Through the seminar course students will be able to interpret the existing scientific knowledge in the field of reproduction biology by comparing it with the academic knowledge gained during the program. When conducting an academic study, it will be possible to evaluate the necessary scientific data, to use it in appropriate fields, and most importantly, to develop and synthesize the existing knowledge about necessary research methods about how this scientific database will reach and present it as a report.


UB 599  MASTER'S THESIS

By means of thesis project, the student will be able to interpret existing scientific knowledge in the field of reproductive biology by comparing it with the academic knowledge gained during the program. On the other hand, when conducting an academic study, the applicant will be able to evaluate the necessary scientific data and use it in the appropriate fields, and most importantly, to develop his / her existing knowledge of the necessary research methods for how this scientific database will arrive and find the field of application.


Elective Courses


SABE 551  Scientific Foundations


SABE 552  Preparing A Scientific Research Project


UB 504  EMBRYOLOGY AND ANDROLOGY PRACTICAL


UB 551  FUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES OF THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

Learning of the physiology and functions of the male and female reproductive system and their relations with the clinic


UB 552  MOLECULAR, CELL CULTURE and HISTOLOGY PRACTICALS

Functional properties of reproductive system


UB 553  MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF FERTILISATION AND IMPLANTATION

In the course, firstly it will deal with the stages of sperm and oocyte fertilization and the enzymes, proteins, factors and receptors that produce sperm and oocyte at these stages. The hormonal and molecular mechanisms of fertilization and implantation will be shed light on. Subsequently, the preparation process of the uterus and the maternal and embryonic factors involved in implantation and their association with the clinic will be discussed. The changes from the zygote stage to the blastocyst stage and the stages of implantation will be explained. At the time of the implantation window, interactions between the invasive blastocyst and the receptive endometrium and the importance of microenvironment will be discussed. The factors and molecules involved in the maternal and embryonic interaction in the implantation area will be discussed. Cases of normal implantation or localization failure and total implantation failure will be discussed.


UB 554  CELL SIGNALLING PATHWAYS IN EMBRYOGENESIS

Once the steps of signal transduction are identified; endocrine, paracrine and juxtacrine signal transduction, signal molecules in protein and steroid structure will be described. Significant signal pathways involved in embryo development and associated clinical conditions will be discussed.


UB 555   PLASENTA AND FETAL MEMBRANES - ASSOCIATED PATHOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY

After discussing how the immune system distinguishes between friendly and hostile, the concepts of immunosurveyans and immunological tolerance will be explained. Then the complex mechanisms that the immune system uses to recognize and destroy foreign cells in the body will be explained. The fetus is immunologically foreign, why fetal rejection does not occur and it is argued which cells and mechanisms are involved in it.


UB 556  GENETICS OF REPRODUCTION AND INFERTILITY, PREIMPLANTATION GENETIC DIAGNOSIS

Genetic Basis of Hereditary Diseases; Prenatal Diagnosis; In Vitro Fertilization; Gametogenesis and Preimplantation Embryo Development; Preimplantation Genetics; Preimplantation Methods Used in Genetic Diagnosis; The Future of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis


UB 557  STEM CELL BIOLOGY

Introduction to stem cell biology and its history, definition of stem cells, types of stem cells, advantages and disadvantages of embryonic, mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells and their use, cancer stem cells, stem cell microcirculation ethical and legal applications and clinical applications of stem cells
