Incoming graduate students to the Department of Biochemistry will participate in rotations during the first term of their studies. Students will undertake 3 rotations, each lasting 5 weeks. At the end of the third rotation, students will decide in which lab (in agreement with the PI) they will conduct their studies.
The rotation system will improve the fit of the incoming student, with their prospective PI and the laboratory.
Supervisor-Student Agreement Form and Final Approval
Before the applicant can register with the graduate school he/she and the future supervisor must notify the biochemistry graduate office. Once registered, the student and supervisor will complete an online agreement form. Among other things, this formalizes the faculty member’s commitment to mentor the applicant and to provide him/her with a stipend.
