About Us

Mission Statement

Translational and Molecular Medicine (TMM) inspires students to engage in biomedical discovery. Our program emphasizes hands on research of cellular and molecular disease mechanisms and its impact on human health, and provides hands-on research experiences in a collaborative and supportive environment to foster academic excellence, critical thinking and professional development

Welcome from Director

Welcome to the Honours Bachelor of Science in Translational and Molecular Medicine (TMM), a collaborative effort between the researchers at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine and its affiliate health care institutes. TMM is truly revolutionary in integrating theoretical and practical courses with e-learning techniques to offer students the most advanced and innovative learning experience in Canada. In TMM, students not only learn about biologically relevant medical issues in the largest health network in Eastern Ontario, but they also acquire the technical knowledge to confront the complex biomedical challenges of tomorrow.

TMM offers the largest number of advanced laboratories for an undergraduate program in Canada including, but not limited to, bioinformatics, immunology, neurobiology and behavioural sciences, cancer biology, high-end microscopy techniques, systems biology and protein X-Ray crystallography. 

Over the last two years, professors at the Faculty and its affiliated institutes have collaborated to ensure that students graduating with a degree in TMM will be equipped with the skill set required to perform cutting-edge biomedical research. A degree in TMM will also provide students with an excellent preliminary portfolio for application to medical school.
