Dean's Message

Message from the Dean
Prof. Kyriacos Kyriacou
Dean of the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine

Dear Prospective Students,

It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine, the brain child of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics. The CSMM was established in 2012 and with two successful years behind us we are entering the third year of operations, fully committed and determined to deliver a high calibre education to our students.

The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics was established in 1991 as a bi-communal, non-profit organization with the mission to function as a Regional Centre of Excellence in the areas of Neurology, Genetics and other Biomedical Sciences. In order to fulfil its mission CING established 14 different departments, of which 5 are clinics, covering Neurology and Neurosciences. The remaining 9 are laboratory departments that offer diagnostic services for a wide range of diseases, including thalassaemia, neurological disorders and cancer.

A unique characteristic of all CING departments is that their activities are based on the following three pillars: the delivery of specialized diagnostic services, the execution of competitive research and the organization of educational programs. The CSMM provides the educational platform through which the substantial experience gained by the CING personnel in both the diagnostic and research fields, is transmitted to the students. The CSMM programs offer a unique teaching and learning environment that stimulates and benefits the students. Thus the CSMM provides the springboard, for training the next generation of scientists in an environment that fosters excellence and ensures a high calibre of education. Already 37 highly trained students have graduated, 20 with an MSc in Medical Genetics and 17 with an MSc in Molecular Medicine.

Please take time to go through our prospectus and you will soon appreciate that our innovative MSc and PhD programs, cover a wide spectrum of interesting disciplines, which are organized around taught courses and research in our highly advanced laboratories. The CSMM programs are specialized, but within each program there is multidisciplinary and complementarity, in an effort to expose you to the latest advances but at the same time informing you about the challenges that lie ahead. Our academic staff is experienced and passionate about their work so we promise you a high calibre education that will reflect on your life and shape your future career. A unique feature of our programs is that students are exposed to the everyday uses of new knowledge and thus get first-hand experience on real life diagnostic and research applications. An exciting new addition to our existing programs of Medical Genetics and Molecular Medicine is the Neurosciences Program. This will immensely benefit students who select it, as they will be exposed to the vast experiences gained by the CING faculty, who are working for more than 20 years in this challenging field. For further information about our programs do not hesitate to contact our very able academic staff.

I invite you to join the CING community and experience first-hand the stimulating and challenging environment in which we operate. It is an environment based on academic excellence which ensures that all our efforts are invested in offering quality services which in turn improve the quality of life of Cypriot citizens.

My sincere wishes for a fruitful continuation of your studies and career!
