McGill University is the world’s third-best university for the study of Anatomy & Physiology, behind only the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, according to the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject.
The seventh edition of QS Quacquarelli Symonds’s analysis of subject-specific university performance, released today, lists the world’s best universities for the study of 46 different subjects. Anatomy & Physiology is one of four new subject categories introduced in this year’s listing.
Research underlines importance of computational power in future neurological breakthrough
Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital have used a powerful tool to better understand the progression of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD), identifying its first physiological signs.
For McGill scientists specializing in protein-traffi cking diseases such as cystic fi brosis (CF), October 17, 2011 marked a monumental event with the opening of McGill’s Cystic Fibrosis Translational Research Centre (CFTRc) in the McIntyre Medical Sciences Building. Celebrated by a one-day symposium highlighting McGill’s proven strengths in this research area, the Centre brings society one step closer to eradicating CF.

Researchers have discovered how to predict some cardiac arrhythmias several steps before they even occur. It’s a finding that could lead to an improved cardiac device, with equipment designed to detect when arrhythmias are about to occur and then act to prevent them.
It happens to all of us at least once each winter in Montreal. You’re walking on the sidewalk and before you know it you are slipping on a patch of ice hidden under a dusting of snow. Sometimes you fall. Surprisingly often, you manage to recover your balance and walk away unscathed. McGill University researchers now understand what’s going on in the brain when you manage to recover your balance in these situations. And it is not just a matter of good luck.
