The Cardiac Translational Research Lab is affiliated with the University of Ottawa Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. The objective of graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of philosophy (PhD) in cellular and molecular medicine is to prepare candidates for a career in university teaching and research. During training, the student will develop a critical approach to published work and to their own work. Graduates acquire an excellent knowledge of their chosen field and a general understanding of the areas related to their own particular research project. They must demonstrate research skills and credibility as professionals in their area of research.
MSc. and PhD students are paid but must be registered with the University of Ottawa. All students are given their own research project that provides the opportunity to learn the fundamental and experimental techniques needed to complete the research question.
Admission to the graduate program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is governed by the general regulations of the FGPS and students should review the guidelines provided by CMM. Once accepted to the program, students should contact the Cardiac Translational Research Lab with the subject “Graduate student application”.
