Description:Established in 1984, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Biology (OCIB) combines the research strengths of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. The Institute offers graduate programs leading to the master’s (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in Biology. Research facilities are shared between the two campuses. Students have access to the professors, courses and facilities at both universities; however, they must register at the “home university” of the thesis supervisor. Members of the Institute are engaged in three main research fields: cell and molecular biology; ecology, behaviour and systematics; and, physiology and biochemistry. Additional information is posted in the departmental website. The Institute is a participating unit in the collaborative program in Environmental Sustainability.
