The Anatomy and Cell Biology Department at McGill University offers graduate programs leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees.


About this Program

Research in the Anatomy and Cell Biology Department at McGill University investigates the dynamics and organization of molecules, organelles, cells, and tissues in several major systems of the body. The work makes fundamental contributions to a number of established and emerging multidisciplinary fields such as:

  • cell and molecular biology;
  • cellular immunology and hematology;
  • reproductive biology;
  • calcified tissue biology;
  • tumour cell biology;
  • developmental biology;
  • neurobiology;
  • aging.

The Department offers contemporary facilities for the wide range of techniques currently employed in research. Modern methods of cell and molecular biology, immunology, and biochemistry are used in conjunction with specialized microscopy in a variety of experimental systems.

The Department has one of the largest and best-equipped electron microscope facilities in the world. Currently in use are four modern electron microscopes which include a Tecnai F20 and a Titan Krios. Combined with some of these microscopes are computer-aided analytical equipment capable of elemental microanalysis, histomorphometry, reconstruction, and quantitation. The high-voltage microscope is particularly useful for certain analytical electron optical procedures such as electron diffraction, lattice imaging, and three-dimensional electron microscopy.
