About

The PHD program in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Guelph is offered in five fields: 1) biochemistry; 2) cell biology; 3) microbiology; 4) molecular biology and genetics; and 5) plant biology.

Overview

Key Facts 

  • Opportunities for collaborative specializations are available in the areas of Neuroscience, Toxicology, and One Health.  
  • The objective of the Molecular and Cellular Biology program at the University of Guelph is to develop independent and creative scientists specializing in molecular and cellular biology. 
  • Graduates will be prepared for positions as scholars in academic institutions, as leaders in the research and development sector of the biomedical and other industries or government agencies, and in social institutions.

Programme Structure

Curriculum: 

  • Students in the PhD program must complete MCB*7500 PhD Research Topics in Molecular & Cellular Biology. This two-semester course should be completed in the first year of study and normally within the first two semesters. 
  • Students without an MSc degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology or the equivalent are required to take one additional graduate course. Other courses may be taken on the recommendation of the Advisory Committee. An average of “B-minus” (70%) must be achieved in the prescribed courses. 
  • To be a candidate for the PhD degree, each student must pass a PhD Qualifying Exam. The Qualifying Examination is completed before the end of the fifth semester (for students with an MSc) or the end of the seventh semester (for students without an MSc).
