Graduate Programs & Requirements

Prior to the creation of the CSB graduate program in 2008, there were two programs previously available in Cell and Systems Biology – Plant and Microbial Biology, and Zoology – and students were registered for either MSc or PhD studies in both programs.

The graduate program in Cell and Systems Biology has been approved by the University of Toronto and the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies.  Consequently, entry into the Plant and Microbial Biology or Zoology graduate programs is no longer possible and the two programs have been phased out.  All cohorts of graduate students who began their programs after September 2008 have been registered in the CSB graduate program.
