Cancer is a complex disease, caused by multiple cellular dysregulations.
For many years, the problem has been addressed by studying one single gene or one single function at a time, but in the age of genomics and proteomics, a growing number of Investigators are now studying cancer as a whole by combining new techniques with a multidisciplinary approach.
It was with a view to training the next generation of scientists for these new approaches that IRIC set up research training in systems biology. The training, developed by our Investigators and using the various core facilities available at the Institute, fits in perfectly with the multidisciplinary and collaborative approach put forth by IRIC.
Master’s in Molecular Biology, Systems Biology option
The Master’s Program in Molecular Biology, Systems Biology option of the Université de Montréal, prepares you, in one or two years, for a Ph.D. program in biomedical research.
By opting for this training, you gain access to innovative and interactive teaching methods integrating molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, immunology, bioinformatics, genomics, medical physics, and the more clinical aspects of biomedical research.
Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Systems Biology option
This program offers Ph.D. training in molecular biology, systems biology option, from the Université de Montréal.
The program focuses as much on a molecular biology section as it does on cell biology, biochemistry, immunology, bioinformatics, genomics, medical physics, and the more clinical aspects of biomedical research.
The program allows you to carry out a research project by adopting a multidisciplinary approach and ensuring privileged access to cutting-edge research core facilities.
