About Anatomy and Cell Biology

About Anatomy and Cell Biology

The Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology offers courses that deal with:

  • cell biology;
  • histology;
  • embryology;
  • neuroanatomy; and
  • gross anatomy.

The Honours program is designed as the first phase in the training of career cell and molecular biologists. The Major and Liberal programs offer decreasing levels of specialization in Anatomy and Cell Biology but with a broader base in other biological sciences. These programs also form a sound background for graduate studies in Anatomy and Cell Biology, or for further professional training. Students should choose their major based on their interest and also consider the Interdisciplinary Minor in Life Sciences. A B.Sc. in Anatomy and Cell Biology provides an excellent preparation for technical and administrative positions in laboratories of universities, research institutions, hospitals, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological industries.

The Department is equipped to perform protein purification; recombinant DNA technology; micro-injection of molecules into single cells; cytochemical; immunocytochemical and fluorescent analysis and electron microscopy; proteomics; and genomics. The Department has a well-equipped centre for electron microscopy as well as a centre for confocal and immunofluorescence. The new cryo-electron microscope facility in the Department is unique and represents a cutting edge technology to apply fundamental discoveries to therapeutic applications.

Inquiries about programs should be directed to the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.
