Cellular and Molecular Biology (PhD)
This program incorporates the latest knowledge in cellular and molecular biology. It will provide you with a cutting-edge understanding of the molecular structure and functioning of cells, both with respect to genetics and gene expression and to the nature and regulation of the structural and functional organization of the cell as it carries out its various activities.
Applicants must have a master’s degree in biochemistry or cellular and molecular biology, or an equivalent degree.
Applicants who hold a master’s degree in a related field may be eligible. However, the program director may require students to do qualifying coursework depending on their previous training.
Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 2.67 out of 4.33.
Applicants must have a good knowledge of written and spoken French.
Applicants who are not proficient in French must have an excellent knowledge of English.
Applicants must have a good understanding of written English.
