CMMS students will establish competencies in the required subjects by taking core courses or receiving credit by examination for the required courses. Core courses provide a common base of knowledge in biomolecular structures and functions and state-of-the-art analytical techniques. Additional required and elective course work and research training of each student are monitored by the student's Dissertation Committee and the CMMCC according to the guidelines, requirements, rules and regulations of the home doctoral program, the CMMS, and the CSU Graduate College.
Core and elective courses are designed to satisfy CMMS requirements as well as some home program requirements. Ultimately, the student demonstration of the required competencies is determined by the Dissertation Committee based on the student’s performance in courses, formal exams, and informal discussions. The Dissertation Committee and the rules of the home program also govern transfer of credits from other universities towards satisfying CMMS requirements.
Students will be required to demonstrate competencies in the following graduate level subjects:
BIO and CHM students: Bioethics, Graduate Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cell Biology or Physiology or Macromolecular Structure and Dynamics (prior to Spring 07, these requirements also applied to BME)
BME students: Bioethics, Tissue Engineering, two of the following: Physiology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Genetics
Example curriculum for biology and chemistry students who elect the Specialization
* required or optional according to rules of the home program
For subsequent years, elective courses will be selected based on both the student’s interest and the advisor’s recommendation.
Proposed core courses for satisfying required competencies in
Cellular and Molecular Medicine Specialization:
A sequence of seminars will be designated Cellular and Molecular Medicine Seminars for each semester. These seminars will be selected from seminars offered by the home departments and by CC. Attendance at these seminars will be based on recommendation of the student’s advisor(s).
Additional electives/special topic courses or workshops to be taken as recommended by advisor: (These electives can be courses already offered at CSU or courses to be created and one-time, special topics courses; they may be team-taught or taught by CSU/CC faculty; 1 semester, 1-3 credits. Course numbers will be created in the different home departments as appropriate)
Topics for future courses or special topics offerings include:
Existing courses include:
Additional courses are listed in the Graduate Bulletin under each doctoral program.
