Co-op Program in Biochemistry

The Co-op Program in Biochemistry has the same academic course requirements as the Honours or Specialization programs taken by "regular stream" undergraduates. However, Co-op students alternate their academic semesters with off-campus paid work terms in government or industrial laboratories where they are employed as biochemists in-training.
