Student Advisory Committee

Thesis Advisor

The thesis advisor is responsible for helping their students maintain steady progress toward their Master’s degrees. The thesis advisor guides the student in effectively utilizing the resources within the IMPBS and the overall academic community to ensure that the student becomes well-trained and educated. The relationship between the thesis advisor and the student should be established only after careful consideration and assessment by both the student and their prospective thesis advisor.

All faculty with primary or secondary appointments at CMU may serve as thesis advisors for graduate students in the IMPBS. A thesis advisor is expected to assume financial responsibility for the student during their tenure in the faculty member’s laboratory.  

Thesis

The format of every thesis should include an “Abstract”, an “Introduction or Background” section that reviews the literature as well as provides a rationale for the problems addressed, a “Materials and Methods” section, a “Results” section that presents the experimental data, and finally a “Discussion” section that summarizes the conclusion and postulates about avenues for future perspective work.  

The Thesis Advisory Committee comprises three to five members; two to four are faculty in the International Master’s Program of Biomedical Sciences (IMPBS) and one member is from outside CMU. The thesis must be submitted to the Thesis Advisory Committee at least one week prior to the defense to permit the members adequate time to review it.
