- Burnett School College of Medicine Students
More than 100 students received degrees from the College of Medicine’s Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences in ceremonies at the University of Central Florida this week.
The fall 2011 graduates included 95 undergraduates, who received degrees in molecular biology and microbiology, biotechnology and medical laboratory sciences. In addition, eleven graduate students received master’s degrees, and three received doctorates in biomedical sciences.
The doctoral graduates are Cherine Belal (major adviser, Dr. Sic Chan); Ryan P. Lamers (major adviser, Dr. Alexander Cole); and Jixiang Xia (major adviser, Dr. Steven Ebert).
Dr. Deborah German, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the College of Medicine congratulated all of the Burnett school graduates along with the 4,500 total anticipated graduates at this week’s commencement ceremonies. “We are delighted to share this exciting time with the graduates and their families,” Dr. German said, “It’s a joy to see these outstanding young scientists take the next step on their life’s journey.”
The Burnett school will be busy with more students when the second semester begins in January. About 2,600 undergraduates and 111 graduate students (62 in the doctoral program, and 49 in the master’s) will be enrolled, said Dr. Roseann White, associate director of the Burnett school.
