Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Programs

Neuroscience Collaborative Program

Biomedical Sciences was one of the founding Departments of the Collaborative Specialization in Neuroscience Program.  The Collaborative Specialization in Neuroscience provides a specialization for Master’s and PhD students engaged in research in the rapidly expanding field of neuroscience, by permitting students to combine their departmental degree program with multidisciplinary exposure to the field of neuroscience. This unique combination of multidisciplinary studies provides students with the best possible foundation for academic careers in neuroscience and related areas. The spcialization includes participation from core faculty in the following departments: Animal Biosciences, Biomedical Science, Clinical Studies, Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, Integrative Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Pathobiology, Population Medicine, and Psychology.  Students in the Collaborative Neuroscience Program are required to complete two neuroscience-specific graduate courses along with the course requirements for their MBS, MSc or PhD degrees.

 

Program Requirements:

In addition to the Program requirements of the participating department in which the student is enrolled, the following courses are required:

  • NEUR*6000 Principles of Neuroscience (0.5 credit)
  • NEUR*6100 Neuroscience (0.0 credit) – students must register for this every Fall and Winter semester that they are enrolled in the program. 

Students are encouraged to review to the Neuroscience Collaborative Specialization Website for additional information, special circumstances and suggestions when selecting Advisory Committee Members.

 Toxicology Collaborative Program

The Collaborative Toxicology Specialization (MBS, MSc & PhD) is an interdepartmental collaborative program that focuses on research and teaching in toxicology.  Many students wish to complement their graduate studies by adding a collaborative specialization. Students completing a collaborative program not only gain in-depth understanding of their research area, but also how their research fits into the context of the collaborative program.  Students in the Collaborative Toxicology Program are required to complete two Toxicology-specific graduate courses along with the course requirements for their MBS, MSc or PhD degrees.

 

Program Requirements

In addition to the program requirements of the participating department in which the student is enrolled, the following courses are required:

  • TOX*6000 Advanced Topics in Toxicology (0.5 credit)
  • TOX*6200 Advanced Principles in Toxicology (0.5 credit)

Students are encouraged to review to the Toxicology Collaborative Specialization Website for additional information and suggestions when selecting Advisory Committee Members.
