Experimental Surgery, in conjunction with the McGill Faculty of Graduate Studies offers graduate level training program in Experimental Surgery, leading to a Master's or Ph.D. degree. The academic program is streamed to permit students from either a clinical or basic research backgrounds to receive an excellent experience and interactions within our department. Most laboratories are structured along similar lines - full time basic scientists interacting with clinician -scientists. In this manner, movement of new discoveries from the bench to the bedside is facilitated and encouraged.

The main research interests in the program include projects in islet cell differentiation and islet transplantation, tissue engineering of cardiac muscle, immunopathogenesis of liver xenograft rejection, lung transplantation; the biology of tissue repair and fibrosis; cartilage regeneration, osteoinduction and biomechanics; sepsis and multi-organ failure; biology of cancer; sexual dysfunction, prostate cancer and kidney stones; and surgical epidemiology, including evaluative and outcomes research with an emphasis on the evaluation of emerging technology and trauma.
