University of Toronto - Faculty of Medicine - Department of Molecular Genetics

The Department of Molecular Genetics is a premier venue for biomedical & life sciences research and education. Our faculty are situated at five modern ‘nodes’ within a five-minute walk from each other in the heart of Toronto’s Discovery District. Over 250 graduate students are enrolled in our top-flight research M.Sc. and Ph.D. Program in Molecular Genetics.

Cutting-edge research in the labs of our 100 faculty provides an enormous breadth and depth of expertise and training. Incoming students are exposed to this breadth via a rotation system that ensures they find a research home that closely matches their interests and personality. We additionally offer quantitative and computational biology PhD tracks for students with a solid grounding in the physical and computer sciences.
