Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry at McGill University
How do cells work? How do dysfunctional molecular interactions result in diseases? And how could we design molecules to cure those diseases? Biochemistry is the science that explains life at a molecular level and finds solutions to complex health disorders. Whether you are looking for a career as a laboratory scientist, clinical biochemist, forensic scientist, geneticist, precision medicine consultant, or medical liaison manager, or if you simply want to become a top-notch researcher recognized worldwide, Biochemistry provides a solid core program and opportunities you were looking for.
