Faculty Committees

The Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine Graduate Program is a university-wide program centered in the Department of Pathology, Anatomy & Cell Biology. Program administration includes four faculty committees: Admissions, Curriculum, Student Affairs and Executive. 

  • The Admissions Committee reviews all applications to the graduate program and makes acceptance recommendations to the Program Director. Final acceptance of an applicant requires approval by the Dean of the Graduate School.

  • The Curriculum Committee establishes program requirements and periodically reviews the curriculum, making revisions as necessary. This committee also establishes guidelines, approves topics and forms student committees for the Preliminary Exam.

  • The Student Affairs Committee reviews the progress of all graduate trainees in the program on a yearly basis.

  • The Executive Committee is composed of four senior faculty members in the Cell & Developmental Biology Program. The Committee provides program oversight and develops policies and procedures in conjunction with the Program Director. The constitution of student PhD Thesis Research Committees requires the approval of the Executive Committee.

These committees report to the Program Director, and the Director presents a summary of the committees' activities at program faculty meetings.
