University of Toronto

Since our inception, the Department of Medical Biophysics 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 significant focus in cardiovascular disease and neuroscience are also offered.

Graduate studies in the department focuses on both basic and translational research, and our graduates hold leading positions in fields ranging from Academia, Pharma & Biotechnology to Government, Education and Professional practice (Medicine, Law and Business).
