Graduate Profiles

Alex Therien, BSc’94 PhD’99
Research Fellow, Merck Frosst

“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

Research Seminar 2 (BIOC 703, Senior Seminar)

Grade:Pass/Fail

Guidelines

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.

Doctoral Thesis

The Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website has all the Thesis guidelines Master's and doctoral students require, along with the Forms related to thesis submission. There, you will find:
