University of Toronto

Medical Biophysics (MBP) is an interdisciplinary graduate department in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Since our inception, MBP research has become increasingly interdisciplinary, cutting across the conventional boundaries of biology, physics, medicine, chemistry, engineering, computer science and mathematics. The department continues to address problems of medicine with a focus on the detection, prevention and treatment of cancer, but many of our faculty are also applying MBP research principles to fields such as cardiovascular sciences and neuroscience.
