Medical Biophysics - Study Canada

The Department of Medical Biophysics, an interdisciplinary department with three streams – Cell and Molecular Biology, Molecular and Structural Biology, and Medical Physics – is located primarily at the Ontario Cancer Institute and the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
The department offers opportunities for research – leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees – in a variety of biological problems; projects which cut across the conventional boundaries of physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, and medicine are encouraged. The department emphasizes basic and applied research related to cancer. Projects include the following areas: tumour biology, radiobiology, membrane function, molecular interactions, gene expression, cell differentiation and growth control, viral and chemical carcinogenesis, cellular and molecular immunology, hemopoiesis, macromolecular structure via x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, the physics of radiation therapy and diagnostic imaging, development of imaging systems involving ultrasound, nuclear magnetic resonance, and electron optics.
Degrees Offered
