Study at a center of excellence in Cyprus
The Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine (CSMM), a School of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING), commenced operation in September 2012.
As a Center of Excellence in basic and applied research in biomedical and clinical sciences aiming to combine services, research and education so as to ultimately improve the quality of life of people, the CING has paved the way for a new generation of scientists.
The Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine, housed within the CING premises provides students with a unique educational experience combining taught courses and research conducted in specialized state-of the-art laboratories, in the areas of neurology, genetics and biomedical sciences. The School’s seven programs are: MSc in Molecular Genetics, MSC in Medical Genetics, MSc in Neuroscience, MSc in Biomedical Research, PhD in Molecular Medicine, PhD in Medical Genetics, PhD in Neuroscience.
The MSc programs are organized around taught courses, (including tutorial sessions for each course on a weekly basis) and a library or research project carried out in the Institute’s laboratories. Successful students must pass all course examinations and the MSc Thesis Examination in order to be awarded the MSc degree. The CSMM offers 12-month MSc programs in full-time mode and 24-month MSc programs in part-time mode.
The PhD programs are organized around taught courses, (including tutorial sessions for each course on a weekly basis) and a research project (thesis work) carried out in the Institute’s laboratories. Successful students must pass all course examinations, the PhD Thesis Examination and have at least one first author publication in a peer-reviewed journal in order to be awarded a PhD degree. The CSMM offers four-year doctoral programs which can be extended to a maximum of six years for completion of the thesis work.
The parent organization of the CSMM is the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING) which was established in 1990 as a private, bi-communal, non-profit, academic center with the aim of providing research, services and education in the areas of neurology, genetics and biomedical sciences.
The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics has the largest and most technologically developed research infrastructure in Cyprus and the neighboring area in the sectors of neurology, genetics, biomedical, medical and related sciences, offering the School’s students an unparalleled work environment.
CING consists of Clinics and Departments in the areas of Clinical Neurology, Clinical Genetics, Electron Microscopy/Molecular Pathology, Molecular Virology, Biochemical Genetics, Cytogenetics & Genomics, Molecular Genetics Thalassaemia, Cardiovascular Genetics & Forensic Genetics, Neurogenetics and Molecular Genetics, Function & Therapy. With the establishment of the School, the medical, research and educational activities of the CING have been enhanced and developed even further.
