Translational and molecular medicine is an area of research that coordinates the application of novel discoveries in biological sciences to practical applications in pharmaceutical or clinical settings. This innovative undergraduate program incorporates clinical observations and questions into scientific approaches designed to improve human health and longevity by facilitating new diagnostic tools and treatments.
The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Translational and Molecular Medicine (TMM) offers a unique and innovative learning environment where students are exposed to and trained in cutting edge biomedical research. TMM is a specialized undergraduate program providing students a solid theoretical and technical education to prepare them for careers in translational and molecular medicine. Students receive training by both basic scientists and clinicians, exposing them to rich experiences in fields such as cancer biology, cell biology, developmental biology, microbiology, immunology, neurobiology, stem cell biology and systems biology.
TMM has the distinction of offering the largest number of laboratory courses for undergraduate students in Canada. Students graduating with a degree in TMM have the knowledge and skills to perform biomedical research, as well as the credentials required to apply to graduate school and medical school. The third-year rotation program exposes the students to cutting-edge biomedical research early in their training program. Limited enrolment ensures a low student/ professor ratio. This means personalized attention in classes and increased student success. For example, 52% of students in our first cohort were accepted into Canadian Medical Schools.
