Office of Military and Veterans Academic Excellence The MS program in Cancer Biology offers a strong didactic and laboratory curriculum in cancer biology with a major focus on molecular oncology.
Our goal is to provide intensive research training for students who are interested in a career in academia, medicine, industry, or related careers in which first-hand research experience is an asset. Students are encouraged to attend weekly departmental seminars, Grand Rounds presentations and annual symposia.
The master's degree in Cancer Biology is offered under Plan A only. Students should select an advisor and committee as early as possible in the second semester of year 1 to begin full time thesis research.
Students should strive to publish one peer-reviewed paper as first or second author to demonstrate the quality of their research. Qualified applicants must have a BS or BA degree from an accredited college or university, preferably with a major in biology, chemistry, physics, or a closely related discipline.
Tradition of Exceptional Medical Physics Training Access to State of the Art Clinical Facilities Distinguished Faculty Distinguished and Active Alumni Successful Placement of Graduates! The WayneState University graduate programs in Medical Physics are among the most established and prestigious in North America.
WSU graduates are currently practicing at hospitals and academic centers throughout the world. In fact, nearly one out of every 25 members of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (APM) is a graduate of the WSU program.
The programs are administered through the WSU School of Medicine, Division of Radiation Oncology, and are based in the Karma nos Cancer Center. The WSU School of Medicine is also affiliated with the Henry Ford Health System, offering students access to additional clinical and academic resources.
Students in our graduate programs are trained in a clinical environment and work with the same equipment used by the professional medical physics staff to treat patients in our affiliated radiology and radiation oncology departments. One thing, though, has remained consistent: her message to students who may feel overwhelmed by the university admissions process.
For her dedication, Reynolds was recently recognized by the Michigan Association of College Admission Counseling (MACAO) with its ACE Award, which celebrates those with more than five years of service in admissions counseling and whose work reflects a commitment to “advocate, collaborate and educate” on behalf of students and counselors. In her role, Reynolds notes that patience, listening and developing a personal connection with students are key.
