2023-2024 CATALOG

The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.

Cellular and Molecular Oncology (MS)

The Cellular and Molecular Oncology Master of Science (CMO MS) program will prepare master’s level scientists to meet the changing landscape of cancer research. Our CMO MS graduate program focuses on training and providing both the academic and laboratory research tools to best prepare graduate students to meet the challenges within the field of oncology early in their careers.

Students will be trained for future careers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, or biomedical industry. Top researchers within Loyola’s Department of Cancer Biology will mentor CMO MS students toward the successful completion of their thesis research, directly involving students in the lab from day one. The profile of CMO MS students will be as diverse as the subject matter that they seek to study, many may seek to prepare themselves for an industry-related career, others will become top candidates for PhD programs, and some will be competitive candidates for healthcare professional schools.

A commonality linking Loyola's CMO MS graduate students lies in their fundamental passion for effecting change in cancer-research.
