This is a collaborative graduate specialization in human and molecular genetics at master's and doctoral level. The primary graduate programs in biochemistry (BCH), cellular and molecular medicine (CMM) and neuroscience (NSC) all collaborate in offering the specialization. The degree awarded specifies the primary program and indicates "specialization in human and molecular genetics".
Students must meet the admission and curriculum requirements of their primary program as well as the specific requirements of the collaborative program.
Members of the program include scientists with interest and expertise in the following areas: developmental genetics, neuromuscular disease, microbial genetics, host resistance, cancer biology, aging, development of novel molecular therapeutics, gene therapy, growth and development, auto-immune diseases, molecular biology of viruses, bacteria and parasites, genetic epidemiology, retinal development and disease, animal models of human disease, molecular aspects of signal transduction.
