Cellular Biology and Immunology study track

 

Admission

As in the Graduate School regulations.

 

Preliminary requirements

One of four laboratories: biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology of the cell, genetics.

For students with an undergraduate degree in biology in a dual-department track: Undergraduate courses that the track views as an essential condition for admission are:

Biochemistry of nucleic acids and molecular biology

Genetics

 

Study program

The study program, built for two years of study (4 semesters), includes required and elective courses, research work, submission of a written summary of the research work, and defending it in a final examination. The study program totals 30 semester hours, to be made up of Graduate School courses as detailed below - that is, courses open to master's degree and doctoral students only. Third year undergraduate students will be admitted to these courses with special approval only.

The study program for each student will be approved by the track committee. A supplementary studies program for students coming from other institutions or other faculties will be determined by the track committee.

 

The scope of studies for the master's degree is 30 semester hours, according to the following breakdown:

 

1. Required faculty courses - 10 s/h

Safety in the Laboratory course (during the first year of studies) – no credit

Guided reading and discussion in research groups – 2 s/h

Departmental seminar for MSc students – each student will participate in the seminar given by the Department in which he performs his research – 2 s/h each year

If these courses have been studied during the undergraduate degree, they will be replaced by elective courses (from the graduate or third year undergraduate degree course), of the same number of hours.

Students whose research paper will include working with animals in the laboratory must take the course: "Principles of the use of laboratory animals in bio-medical research", given by the Faculty of Medicine.

 

3. Elective courses - making up to 30 s/h

Students must make up a total of 30 hours from Graduate School courses and/or undergraduate courses. It is also possible to make up courses from other faculties, with the consent of the student's advisor, but the weight of courses from faculties other than Medicine, Engineering, or Exact Sciences will be no more than 4 semester hours. In any event, the program in its entirety and any changes made to it require the approval of the student's advisor and the track committee.
