Each of the basic science departments within the Division offer discipline specific degree programs either through the College of Arts and Science
for undergraduate B.Sc. degree programs, or through the College of Graduate Studies
and Research for graduate work.
A route for students interested in pursuing B.Sc. Degrees in the life sciences and/or careers in health care professions
The basic science undergraduate B.Sc. degree programs offered stem from a common core platform of biomedical science courses. Visit the Common Core
page for what to take in year one and two. Prior to registration in third year, students choose to major in Anatomy & Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology or Physiology.
In addition to teaching in programs for the Division, Faculty members also provide teaching services to undergraduate medical students, as well as other health professional and science students, and to those who require educational modules within the biomedical sciences. Research activities encompass major themes including Biomedical Imaging of Structure & Function using synchrotron-based approaches, Cardiovascular Research, Cell Cycle/Cancer, Immunology, Infectious Disease, Neuroscience, Metabolic Regulation & Diabetes, and Structural Biology. Wherever possible, efforts are continuously made to develop collaborations with clinician scientists.
