The Collaborative Graduate Program in Cancer Research is jointly offered by the Departments of Anatomy & Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Public Health Sciences, Microbiology & Immunology, Pathology & Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology & Toxicology, and Psychology to provide students with centralized access to the broad range of cancer research opportunities available to them within the Faculty of Health Sciences, and at Queen's University as a whole.
Strengths in graduate education in Cancer Research of Queen's span many research areas from structural and tumour biology and genetics, through epidemiology and biostatistics, to outcomes research and health policy development. The Collaborative Program provides an intellectual focus on cancer and connects researchers and graduate students with different perspectives on this area. The program encourages interactions of researchers and students with common interests in cancer, regardless of departmental home, and at the same time facilitates productive interaction between individuals involved in different research areas, all focused on different aspects of cancer research.
The program requires you to be enrolled in one of the home programs where you can then ask to do the specialization in Cancer Research.
