The Structural Biology and Biochemistry track will provide students with graduate level training in structural biology, biophysics and mechanistic biochemistry with an emphasis on laboratory research. Students will acquire a solid foundation and specialized skills in biomedical, biophysical, and structural sciences that will be preparation for further education in graduate and professional programs as well as a career in academic research or industry. The curriculum includes 38 units of core course work, electives and participation in cutting-edge research in the laboratory of an STBB faculty member. Students will demonstrate original investigation showing critical judgment, as well as familiarity with tools and methods of research, through preparation of a thesis that will be defended prior to obtaining the degree.
Pre-requisites: Physics, Organic chemistry, Biochemistry, Calculus
