Studying Microbiology in Canada

University of Toronto


Department Molecular and Medical Genetics Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology


Overview The program of study in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology at the University of Toronto provides a curriculum of courses and a broad-based multidisciplinary approach to research in mechanisms of disease leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. The Program emphasizes the development of analytical technologies, the application of basic research techniques in biochemistry, cell biology, clinical biochemistry, experimental pathology, genetics, immunology, and molecular biology to the study of mechanisms of cell and tissue injury and the pathogenesis of disease. The program also emphasizes the nature, mechanisms, therapy, and prevention of microbial diseases in humans, as well as the processes by which pathogenic microbes are spread. Areas of research include: bone and matrix pathobiology, Cancer, Cancer development and prevention: The Integrative Science, Immunopathology, Lymphatics, and Transplantation, Laboratory Medicine and, Pathobiology, Microbiology and Infectious Disease, Neuropathobiology and Endocrine Disorders, Vascular and Cardiovascular Biology.


Research Facilities Research laboratories are situated at the University and in the teaching hospitals and their research institutes.

Microbiologists are mainly in two departments (MMG and LMP), while others are located in Dentistry, Botany, Chemical Engineering, Zoology and Life Sciences (UTSC at Scarborough). Most LMP staff are in teaching hospitals, while the MMG microbiologists are on campus. The size and scope of the research fraternity in the Toronto area makes a wealth of expertise, instrumentation and technology available for the taking. Expanding groups in genomics, proteomics and cell-cell signaling have benefited both medical and environmental research projects. The whole is underpinned by the most extensive, public university library in North America.
