Description: The subjects that fall under the umbrella of the Life Sciences program include traditional biomedical disciplines devoted to the anatomical, biochemical, epidemiological, immunological, microbiological, pathological, pharmacological, and physiological sciences. In addition, there are streams dedicated to contemporary trans-disciplinary themes in the cardiovascular and respiratory sciences, drug development and human toxicology, cancer biology and genetics, and neuroscience.

The Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences is responsible for Biochemistry Plans (General/Minor (Science), Major, Specialization) and plays a primary role in the Life Sciences Plans (General/Minor (Science), Major, Specialization). The Department is a unique amalgam of scientists and teachers who share a common goal: to ameliorate the consequences of disease and trauma by training the next generation of health care scientists and professionals. To meet this goal, the Department draws on the depth and breadth of the scientific expertise of its members. Contemporary courses are offered in the anatomical, biochemical, microbiological, immunological, pharmacological, and physiological sciences and in a wide range of cross-disciplinary studies (e.g. cardiovascular and respiratory sciences, drug development, cancer biology and genetics, neuroscience). These courses are integral to the various Biochemistry and Life Sciences Plans.
