A Message from the Graduate Coordinator

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor offers an excellent environment for the pursuit of a graduate education. Our Department is enthusiastic, friendly, cooperative and rejuvenated. Of our 23 faculty, nine have been hired since 2000 to complement the established faculty. As summarised in this brochure, our Department has research groups active in all of the traditional areas of Chemistry and Biochemistry and we have also recently formed several new multi-disciplinary research programmes, including The Centre for Catalysis and Materials Research (CCMR) and The Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER). We invite you to join our exciting and growing department.

In addition to our people, the Department’s state-of-the-art equipment and completely renovated laboratories provide us with research facilities that are comparable to, or even exceed, those found in the Chemistry Departments of much larger universities. In addition to a complete array of spectrometers and other standard synthetic and characterisation equipment, we have many instruments that are not typically available in a single department. To give only a few notable examples: we have two CCD-equipped X-ray diffractometers; solid-state NMR facilities; an AFM imaging system; Raman and IR microscopes; a fluorescence imaging system; and much more! Furthermore, our geographic location puts us in close proximity to Wayne State University and other large American research universities such as the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. This situation allows the members of our Department convenient access to the other institutions’ facilities, conferences, and visiting speakers.

The greater Windsor region has a highly-diverse population of around 325,000 people. The city boasts dozens of excellent and unique restaurants, a thriving night-life, numerous festivals and events on the waterfront, and a variety of parks and outdoor recreation areas. Windsor has a remarkably low cost of living and has one of warmest climates in the country. In addition, our proximity to the Detroit metropolitan area (pop. ca. 5 million) and the United States provides us with numerous unique advantages over other cities in southern Ontario. For example, one can conveniently attend professional sporting events, major concerts, world-class art galleries, and numerous other attractions that are all located less than one hour drive from the University of Windsor. Furthermore, the Detroit International Airport has flights around the globe and provides us with an often less expensive alternative to flying via Toronto. Overall, Windsor has the benefits of a major metropolis combined with the advantages of a smaller city.

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) program offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a Thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. The number and details of the courses are determined within the first semester of the student's program.

Students may complete their degrees in either a full- or part-time capacity. Full-time students complete a 24-month program while part-time students complete a 48-month program. Part-time students will normally complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with the subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the Thesis.

Although degrees are awarded in specific disciplines, the program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies, rather than by individual departments or Faculties.

See the website http://www.uleth.ca/graduate-studies/master-science/majors/biochemistry#

Course detail

Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory thesis. The thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.

Because of the nature of the M.Sc. program, the thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, it is necessary for a candidate to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission. Candidates seeking potential supervisors should contact either the relevant academic department or the School of Graduate Studies.

Our faculty and their research

Graduate Programs

The University academic year begins the first week of September, and the academic year is divided into a 13 week first term - September, October, November - and a 14 week (including reading week in mid-February) second term - January, February, March. There is a formal examination period scheduled at the end of each term. The four month summer term is devoted to research. The usual period for completing an MSc is two to two and one half years while that for a PhD is about five years. All students accepted for the MSc or PhD will be offered a package of funding which includes a research assistantship and a teaching assistant ship - two years guaranteed for the MSc, five years guaranteed for the PhD.

The normal times for a student to begin their programme of study are September 1 or January 1. It is also possible to begin May 1 upon Departmental approval and agreed supervisor selection.

The Department offers MSc and PhD degrees - each degree requires graduate courses and research work reported in a thesis. Each degree requires 12 credits of course work, unless the candidate already holds an approved MSc. Most courses are worth 3 credits.

Students are generally encouraged to complete all their course requirements in their first year if possible in order to allow a more efficient use of time for their research projects. A one credit pass/fail seminar course is part of the requirements. An individual programme is designed by consultation between the graduate advisor, the student's supervisor (if known), and the student at the time of his or her arrival. There are no entrance or cumulative examinations.

Students accepted into the MSc program may transfer directly to a PhD degree program after one year without completing their MSc, provided they have completed in the first year a minimum of 12 credits of course work with an overall average of at least 80%, 9 credits of 80% standing, and one of the seminar courses CHEM 540A, 540B or 540C.

The progress of each PhD student is evaluated once a year at a meeting of the faculty. A supervisory committee is formed for each student; this committee normally consists of the research supervisor and three other faculty members, one of whom is chosen by the student. In their second year, PhD students are required to pass a comprehensive examination. This exam consists of an oral report of their research progress and questioning on their work and the background related to it - this meeting is normally the last requirement before the thesis and must be passed in one or two attempts to achieve candidacy.

At the completion of the thesis, both MSc and PhD students must defend their results and thesis at a formal oral defense. In the case of PhD students an external examiner, chosen in consultation with the supervisor and the graduate advisor, is also asked by the Faculty of Graduate Studies to review the thesis.

Program Overview

The graduate program in Pharmacology was established in 1951, and currently includes programs in cardiovascular pharmacology, neuropharmacology, viral pharmacology, free radical biology, and drug development. Additional training programs exist in therapeutics, evidence-based medicine, and clinical investigation. The pharmacology graduate program has strengths in basic science as well as translational research.

The graduate program in Pharmacology is a component of the newly formed Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics, and formalizes the Department's historical research and academic interactions. Within this new structure, additional research programs reflecting the close association between the disciplines of anesthesiology, pharmacology, and therapeutics are now available. Courses in pharmacology are taught at the undergraduate science, medical, dental, and graduate levels.

The program adheres to an 'apprenticeship' model of graduate training, in which graduate students work in close collaboration with a faculty member who is also their graduate supervisor. The program has strengths in projects covering a wide range of scientific and clinical areas of investigation. The primary aim of our graduate training program is to provide students with the skills necessary to conduct research in pharmacology and therapeutics that can be published in first-rate journals. Thus, an important factor in an applicant's admissibility is a matching of research and professional interests of the student and a faculty member within the program.

The Department has facilities available for original investigations in cellular, biochemical, viral, autonomic, cardiovascular, clinical, and neuropharmacology.
