Cellular and Molecular Biomedical Science MS Faculty Mentors Needed!

Are you a faculty member who has a rotation project or potential thesis project for a Cellular and Molecular Biomedical Science MS student in your laboratory?

Sign up for CMBS-MS Professor Rounds this fall!  

Cellular and Molecular Biomedical Science MS Program Professor’s Rounds
Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00
GPILS Large Conference Room (BRB 1-008)
*** Lunch will be served - please bring your own beverage ***

This a wonderful opportunity for faculty that are able to take students into their labs to present their research to our MS students. The format is for two faculty to present an informal chalk talk at each meeting.

To sign up, please email Elice García-Baca.


More about CMBS MS students: 

  • MS students are required to take 1-2 lab rotations, each lasting about 8 weeks.
  • Faculty taking on MS students for thesis projects should note that mentored MS theses should be completed within approximately 1 year.
  • MS students are not funded by a GPILS stipend or a mentor-supported stipend; they are self-funded. Faculty mentors are not required to provide a stipend for MS students. However, mentors can choose to employ MS students (as lab technicians, for example) at their own discretion. Student employment conditions and benefit options (tuition remition, for example) are up to their employer and do not involve GPILS or the CMBS-MS program in any way.
