Biochemistry: Pathology and Experimental Medicine
|Field of Study:
||The Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology located in the Faculty of Medicine offers graduate programs leading to the master’s (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in Biochemistry. The programs prepare candidates for a variety of careers in teaching and research both within and outside of academia. Graduate students are actively involved in laboratory research, course work, and presentation of research seminars. Thus, they acquire autonomy in conducting research and in preparing publications. The programs create a stimulating and challenging environment which will allow students to achieve excellence in research. Graduates of the programs must demonstrate research skills and credibility as professionals in their area of research. Members of the Department are involved in three main research fields: general biochemistry, molecular biology, and, nutrition and metabolism. Further information is posted on the departmental website.
The department participates in the collaborative doctoral program in Pathology and Experimental Medicine. The objective of the program is to provide graduate students with the knowledge and skills to examine the basic mechanisms of disease pathology, and to develop new strategies for prevention and treatment. The degree awarded specifies the primary program and indicates “specialization: Pathology and Experimental Medicine.”
