Programs

Student working in lab

The Graduate Program in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is an integrated research program. Investigation occurs at the molecular, cellular, tissue and whole organism levels. As part of the program, you will carry out supervised research in various thematic areas including cancer, diabetes, transplantation, stem cell biology, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease, developmental defects, medical molecular cytogenetics and toxicology.

The goal of the program is to train tomorrow's researchers, scientists who will make significant original contributions to the global understanding of disease diagnosis and mechanisms. As a graduate of our program, you will be qualified for a diverse set of careers including academia, government, and the pharmaceutical industry. Our past students have been successful in each of these sectors. To address the specific need for tomorrow's scientists, and to train clinical researchers in a under-resourced profession in Canada, we offer both full- and part-time research-based graduate programs.
