Chapter 22 Academic Culture in the School
The Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences offers a dynamic learning environment where students can explore the complex world of biomedical and molecular sciences to develop into an independent, productive, research scientist. The department provides a cross-disciplinary environment and delivers the programs in a collaborative and integrated manner. This interdisciplinary gives candidates access to over 80 faculty members engaged in a broad spectrum of biomedical research, using techniques to address questions concerning single molecules, cellular/microbial function, organ-systems, and whole-animal biology.
Graduate Student Seminar Series (BMED 897)
BMED 897 is a requirement for all DBMS MSc students. Students are required to attend the DBMS Plenary Seminars and present their research in seminar format to a broad yet knowledgeable audience. This forum also brings all DBMS graduate students and faculty members together on a regular basis to enjoy presentations related to ongoing research activities. At the seminar you will hear presentations by visiting scholars, by our own faculty, faculty from other departments at Queen’s, and by grad students within DBMS. This course spans a two-year period, fall, winter and spring terms.
