Our graduate program, one of the largest and most diverse at the University, spans basic, translational and clinical research.

The program of study in the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology provides a curriculum of courses and a broad-based multidisciplinary approach to research in mechanisms of disease leading to MHSc, MSc and PhD degrees.

Our programs emphasize:

  • the development of analytical technologies
  • the application of basic research techniques in biochemistry, cell biology, clinical biochemistry, experimental pathology, genetics, immunology, and molecular biology to the study of mechanisms of cell and tissue injury and the pathogenesis of disease
  • the nature, mechanisms, therapy, and prevention of microbial diseases in humans, as well as the processes by which pathogenic microbes are spread.
