Our graduate research stream program is one of the largest and most diverse at the University, spanning basic, translational and clinical research which address the nature and molecular mechanisms of human disease.

We provide a curriculum of courses and a broad-based multidisciplinary approach to research in mechanisms of human disease leading to Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

Over 130 faculty members—on campus and at university teaching hospitals—conduct studies and teach courses related to pathobiology and supervise more than 200 students in our PhD and MSc programs.

We provide a unique academic research environment that encourages interaction among clinicians, scientists, and student trainees.

You can gain an excellent understanding of how discoveries in basic and clinical research settings lead to more effective strategies in the treatment of human illness.
