Lead Faculty of the Collaborative Specialization
Participating Degree Programs
Graduate Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences;
Precision Medicine Initiative at U of T (PRiME)
The graduate programs listed above participate in the doctoral Collaborative Specialization (CS) in Next-Generation Precision Medicine, which offers the opportunity for cross-disciplinary research leading to doctoral degrees.
This CS is designed to foster cross-disciplinary training and collaboration across diverse departments at the University. The academic research focus is on cutting-edge technologies and methods to develop novel therapeutic strategies, create new tools for disease diagnosis, and enable a deeper understanding of disease biology through integration of principles and methods across the physical and life sciences and engineering.
Future advances in precision medicine will require a multidisciplinary perspective and creative solutions beyond conventional genomics and mutational profiling. This CS aims to equip researchers with novel approaches to address unmet human health challenges by providing an understanding of commercialization and translation activities that will help advance research discoveries into impactful outcomes.
Upon successful completion of the PhD degree requirements of the participating home graduate unit and the CS, students will receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Specialization in Next-Generation Precision Medicine” on their transcript.
