GRADUATE PROGRAMS - Introduction




GRADUATE  PROGRAMS  -  IntroductionThe Molecular & Cellular Biology laboratory participates in two post-graduate programs: The Molecular Medicine Graduate Program of the University of Crete Medical School and the Graduate Program in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine which has been established and run jointly by the Departments of Biology and Medicine of the University of Crete and the Institute of Molecular Biology & Biotechnology (IMBB).


Both programs recruit a small number of some of the best graduates of biology and medicine in the country and aim at providing advanced training leading to MSc and PhD. Continuous assessment is a major element of these programs. Students are assessed on performance in both formal laboratory work (rotations) and written examinations on subjects taught.


Dr Eliopoulos also co-ordinates the Cancer Biology Module of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Program, Medical School. This module offers instruction in current concepts of the molecular biology and treatment of cancer with emphasis on cutting-edge developments. Lectures are given exclusively in English and include:

  • Cancer stem cells.
  • Inflammation & cancer.
  • DNA damage & repair.
  • Signal transduction in cancer.
  • Viruses and cancer.
  • Cancer gene therapy etc.

At the end of the module, students are expected to:

  • Possess significant knowledge of the molecular and genetic basis of cancer.
  • Possess basic knowledge of current concepts of cancer treatment.
  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the molecular and cellular biology of cancer cells.
  • Use research skills, including the ability to design experiments, interpret data and critically review scientific literature.
The Molecular & Cellular Biology laboratory also offers laboratory projects in cancer-related areas to students participating in the aforementioned programs. For more information contact the Head of the laboratory.
