Ph.D. Thesis Proposal (BIOC 702)
The Ph.D. Thesis Proposal is essentially a summary of the previous work and research plans that the student expects to carry out and eventually incorporate into a Ph.D. thesis. It is assumed that the Ph.D. Thesis Proposal will be a joint effort on the part of the student and the research supervisor, but that the student plays the major role in the writing and organization of the Proposal. The Ph.D.

“I came to McGill because of the quality of the science being done here. The research was far-reaching and very relevant to medical research,” recalls Alex Therien, whose doctoral research “tissue-specific regulation of the sodium-potassium-ATPase” with Professor Rhoda Blostein was based primarily at the Montreal General Hospital.
Research Seminar 2 (BIOC 703, Senior Seminar)
Approximately six months prior to submission of the Ph.D. thesis and before the thesis is written, a student is required to present the “Research Seminar 2” which constitutes a full hour formal presentation plus a discussion period as part of the Biochemistry Seminar Series (Academic). The Senior Seminar should present the complete, or close to complete, body of the research that will constitute the thesis, to a Department-wide audience.
