Message from the Provost of the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine
Prof. Leonidas A. Phylactou
Dear Prospective Student,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine, the postgraduate school of The Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics.
The Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics (CING), as a Center of Excellence and a Referral Center in basic and applied research in biomedical and clinical sciences, combines its three pillars: services, research and education, in order to produce novel knowledge in biology and diseases with the aim of upgrading the quality of life of its patients. This has been its scope for thirty years now; to offer high level services to its patients, the society and to our country as a whole. This will continue to be its scope.
Having built on the experience of CING, the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine (CSMM) was developed to function as a catalyst for the implementation of the Institute’s mission by contributing even more to its research output and clinical applications. Our postgraduate programs give our students a unique education in the areas of neurology, genetics and biomedical sciences with direct application in the area of Health. Like CING, CSMM is a School based on international standards of excellence.
The CSMM provides postgraduate education in biomedical sciences by offering its students a unique environment for Masters and Doctoral studies. Through our academic programs, which combine taught courses and research in our specialized laboratories, students learn how to weave together theory and practice, thus experiencing the real work environment first-hand. This way, our students contribute and play a vital role in our research programs. Our students are the next generation of scientists!
We, at the CSMM, are committed to ensuring high quality, rigorous academic programs that will challenge our students. You can explore the academic programs described on our website for more information. You can always get in touch with our Faculty and the Education Office for assistance.
