Doctoral program

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.

How to apply to the Chemical Biology option

How do I apply to the program?

The Chemical Biology Option is offered by three departments: Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

Students wishing to enroll in the program must apply directly for admission to graduate studies in one of these three departments (Biochemistry, Chemistry, Pharmacology).

Honours program

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.

Chemical biology mentors

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.

Biochemistry Undergraduate Society

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.
