Presenting the new generation of scientists, the third graduation ceremony of the school of molecular medicine of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics of Cyprus took place on Thursday at the Strovolos municipal theatre.
Ten PhD graduates and 37 graduates of masters programmes received degrees. Graduates belong to the fields of molecular medicine, medical genetics, neuroscience and biomedical research. The internationalisation of Cing, one of the primary objectives of the school, has been achieved since so far 12 students from the following countries have attended: UK, Italy, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, Egypt, Israel, Syria, Libya, Cyprus and Greece.
At the same time, Cing is attracting applications from prospective students from many parts of the world. Of particular importance is the fact that graduates of Cing who have acquired post-doctoral positions in some of the world’s most prestigious educational and research institutes, including the UK’s leading Oxford genomics centre, Oxford University, Imperial College London, UCL and King’s College London, have for a moment left their new obligations to attend the ceremony and to officially receive their degrees.
The event was attended by Minister of Health Constantinos Ioannou, who gave a speech on behalf of the President Nicos Anastasiades.
