Studying Microbiology in Canada

University of Sherbrooke


Department Microbiology and Infectious Diseases


Overview The Masters program in Biology includes four main areas of study: bio-data processing, molecular and cellular biology, ecology, and microbiology.

The Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases in the Faculty of Medicine employs a team of researchers working in the following sectors:

- Molecular genetics
- Genetic expression
- Cellular transformation
- Medical microbiology

Research from recent years has made rapid progress in our understanding of the molecular mechanism which is essential in the life of a cell. Molecular biology has become a discipline of study whose ramifications extend into all fields of research in biology. The impact of these discoveries has allowed new biotechnologies to flourish, the rise of genomic/proteomic and acceleration in the discovery of the rate/rhythm of those applications will be numerous, in particular in the field of health.



Research Facilities - Sherbrooke University Hospital Clinical Research Centre
- The RNA group have a state-of-the-art facility for the study of RNA structure and function. A major goal for our group is to maintain an infrastructure that facilitates the exchange of information between members of all labs. Accordingly, the group initiated a regional seminar series, acquired several pieces of shared equipment (e.g. Laser assisted confocal microscope, FPLC, Spectrofluorometer, Bioanalyzer, Instant Imager, etc.), and invested in a bioinformatic platform that includes a comprehensive database for reagents and experimental results.
