Course content

Biophysics at the University of Guelph is a unique interdisciplinary program that seeks to further our understanding of biological processes through the application of the concepts and techniques of the physical sciences. Biophysics research spans the entire breadth of the life sciences spectrum, including structural biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, biological chemistry, microbiology, bioinformatics and biomechanics. Computational tools are applied to predict the behaviour of biological systems at levels ranging from genes to populations. In Biophysics at Guelph, your program of study will be personalized to your needs and you will never have to fit into a box.

-Biophysics Graduate Faculty members come from 11 Departments across campus and from other Universities
-Many members of our Graduate Faculty are award winning researchers and international leaders in their field
-Our research programs are funded by various national and provincial agencies
-Many Biophysics graduate students are co-advised by two faculty members, often from different Departments

Research Environment and Facilities
-A wide range of state-of-the-art facilities at the University of Guelph that facilitate high level of interdisciplinary research: 800, 600 and 500 MHz high resolution and solid-state NMR spectrometry; protein X-ray crystallography; high-throughput protein purification facilities; confocal, atomic force and cryo-electron microscopy; fluorescence spectroscopy; facilities for growth of bacterial, yeast and mammalian cells; genomic and microarray facilities; Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy; biomechanics instrumentation including parallel robots, motion capture, telemetered electromyography, and biaxial and uniaxial materials testing; mass spectrometry; SHARCNET supercomputing cluster
-Many of these facilities are located in the Summerlee Science Complex, a 400,000 sq ft building designed to enhance team-based science that crosses traditional discipline boundaries

Most of our graduate students are funded through a combination of research assistantships, teaching
assistantships and/or internal or external scholarships.
