In the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto graduate students have the opportunity to be trained in leading edge research in the life sciences. You can choose from among 50 active research scientists, all of whom have made many contributions to scientific knowledge. These scientists are located at the University's Medical Sciences Building and at other Institutes and Hospitals nearby. They offer you the choice of a great diversity of subjects in which to do your graduate training. You can work on the latest problems of molecular and cell biology, proteomics and bioinformatics, immunology, protein folding and structure-function relationships, gene expression and development, membranology, and the molecular basis of disease. Our laboratory and instrumentation facilities are superb and are continually updated to the most modern requirements including state-of-the art instruments for NMR, CD, and fluorescence spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, light and electron microscopy, and high speed computation.
