Histology and Embryology Department was founded at 17.07.1993 by Doç. Dr. Serpil KALKAN. Currently two lecturers and five research assistants working in department. Until 2014, 11 students with masters degree; 3 students with Ph.D. degree; and 4 medical specialists were graduated from department.


Our department, has academic staff rooms, one Stem Cell Research Lab, one Routine Research Lab, one Fluorescent Microscope Dark Room and a student lab with 80 person capacity. Academic rooms and research labs are located at the 3rd floor, left wing of Morphology Building of Medical Faculty while student labs are located at the back wing of the building.


Masters education are generally 2 years with an optional 1 year scientific preparation class with med school students. After the preparation year, Masters Students take two semesters lessons of total 60 ECTS credits. Then the students continue with their thesis projects for one year. Masters education can be extended for two semesters. Ph.D. students take four semesters of lessons of total 120 ECTS credits before entering Qualification Exam. Students who success the exam continue with thesis studies for at least four semesters. Ph.D. education can be extended for four more semesters. All post-graduate studies follows the Health Sciences Institution rules and regulations.
Medical Specialization Education students take two years of area lessons, do rotations on obstetrics and medical biology departments and then continue with thesis studies for one year. Before defending their theses, these students enter Qualification Exam. Medical Specialization students follows the Medical Specialization Education rules and regulations, determined by Histology and Embryology Society.
Student education strengthened with weekly seminars and article presentations. Post-graduation students also attends laboratory classes of Medical Faculty and Dentistry students.
Our department also has Erasmus/Socrates exchange program bilateral agreements with Germany (Leipzig Uni.), Poland (Lublin Uni.), and Bulgaria (Sofia and Varna Universities). Other than the exchange programs, academic staff and students also visited other prestigious universities in France or USA such as Yale University starting from three months to one year with TUBİTAK fellowships.

Cancer Research


Our department executes studies especially with Medicine and Dentistry Faculties as well as other Faculties such as, Science and Lecture, Agriculture, Water Products, and Engineering. Our role in joint projects are generally histologic preparation and analyses of tissues obtained from animals or human materials. Immunohistochemical, immunofluorescent stainings, biocompability analyses and histomorphometric evaluations were also made in various projects. Additionally, cell culture services are available for cancer cells, stem cells and germ cells. Available research labs and services were listed below:
Routine Histology Lab
Stem Cell and Cell Culture Lab
Histomorphometric Analyses
Immunohistochemical Analyses
Fluorescent Microscope
Biocompability Analyses
