Research Adviser FAQs
- Q. How do I find a research adviser?
- Q. Can I continue to work with my honors adviser if I join the program?
- Q. Is there a committee to help guide me like there is in the Honors program?
- Q. Will I stay in the same lab after I graduate from Emory College?
A. Research advisers for CBTO 4+1 participants should preferably be members of the Cancer Biology program in the Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences.
Other GDBBS faculty can also serve as MS thesis project advisers as long as the project is clearly cancer-focused. Applicants are asked to list some possible research advisers as part of the application process, but are not limited to those mentioned.
A. Yes, but the work you do for Honors must be different from the work done for your Master's thesis. Your work must be cancer-focused to qualify. If you have any questions, contact us.
A. Yes. In addition to your research adviser, you will be asked to select two other faculty members to serve on your master’s thesis committee. At least two of the members of the committee must be current members of the Cancer Biology program.
You should get the input of your research advisor on which other researchers he/she feels would be appropriate for your commitee.
A. It is expected that 4+1 students will perform their research in a single laboratory throughout the program, beginning in the fall of their senior year in Emory College. If, for some reason, this is not desirable or possible, we will look into other options. Let us know as soon as you feel that you may want to change research advisors.
