Research in Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology (APP) spans the breadth of biomedically-relevant subjects, from molecular genetics to cellular neuroscience to microanatomical imaging and beyond. Across our campus, there are specialized research facilities such as the Canadian Light Source, Canada's only synchrotron, and the Cameco MS Neuroscience Research Center. The APP MSc and PhD programs enable life-long careers in basic or clinical realms of the biomedical sciences.
All information for students interested in the Anatomy Physiology and Pharmacology Program can be found on the admission website for the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
The primary responsibility of the Anatomy Physiology and Pharmacology graduate program toward its graduate students is the provision of an environment that provides advanced training, fosters scholarly development, involves the student in current research, and develops skills in scientific communication, including teaching. A primary goal of the program is to provide an educational experience that will enable its graduates to continue training at a more advanced stage, or to obtain employment. Additionally, the program has the responsibility of ensuring that its graduates will reflect credit upon the program, the department, and on the University.
