Master of Science (M.Sc.) Physiology (Thesis): Chemical Biology (45 credits)

Offered by: Physiology     Degree: Master of Science

Program Requirements

** This program is currently not offered. **

The Graduate Option in Chemical Biology is centered on the pursuit of an original research project under the direction of one or more program mentors. This research training is augmented by student participation in lecture and seminar courses and in a series of thematic workshops, all of which are designed to expose students to the diverse approaches and research issues that characterize the current state of the field. Students with training in this interdisciplinary approach will be highly qualified to seek careers in academic research as well as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

3 credits from the following:

  • CHEM 502 Advanced Bio-Organic Chemistry (3 credits)

    Offered by: Chemistry (Faculty of Science)

    Overview

    Chemistry : This course will cover biologically relevant molecules, particularly nucleic acids, proteins, and their building blocks. In each case, synthesis and biological functions will be discussed. The topics include synthesis of oligonucleotides and peptides; chemistry of phosphates; enzyme structure and function; coenzymes, and enzyme catalysis; polyketides; antiviral and anticancer agents.

    Terms: Winter 2022

    Instructors: Thibodeaux, Christopher; Luedtke, Nathan (Winter)

    • Winter

    • Prerequisite: CHEM 302

    • Restriction: Not open to students who have taken CHEM 402.
