Our doctoral program aims to produce scientists who will be capable of solving biochemical and health-related problems and go on to hold leadership positions in both the public and private sectors.
Requirements for admission
Students who hold an M.Sc. degree from another recognized university (or from another McGill Department) may be considered for admission at the Ph.D. level. These candidates register at the Ph.D. 2 level.
Completing the Ph.D. program
The Chemical Biology Option is offered by three departments: Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
The Honours program in Biochemistry combines the substantial background given by the Major program with a challenging opportunity to carry out laboratory research projects in the U3 year. These courses provide students with research experience under the supervision of a professor in the Department.
The following students are currently participating in the Chemical Biology option:
A Mentor is an individual who has a background and research interests in areas germane to Chemical Biology, and who has expressed a particular interest in participating in the activities of the Option.
BUGS is a student-run organization that represents McGill's biochemistry undergraduate population. BUGS organizes a variety of social and academic events for biochemistry students and the general student body throughout the year.
BUGS also publishes course reviews and gets people together for Note Taking Clubs.
