For many undergraduates the first question will be, what is Medical Biophysics? The name reflects our central focus, which is the application of research disciplines spanning through the biological and physical sciences to the problems of medicine. Our approach is unique in many respects and has been driven throughout our 50-year history by our principal research challenge: cancer. In fact, our Department has its roots in the Ontario Cancer Institute’s original Biology and Physics Divisions and has retained much of this structure: almost all of our laboratories are in hospital-based institutes and translation of our work into clinical medicine is our shared goal. Our programs embrace students from backgrounds in Molecular and Cell Biology, Physiology, Biochemistry and Chemistry as well as Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science and beyond. The diversity of our Faculty and the preponderance of multi-disciplinary projects reflects these backgrounds: for this reason you will find faculty appearing under multiple thematic headings. In the descriptions of our laboratories and their research programs you will find projects in tumour biology, radiobiology, membrane function, molecular interactions, gene expression, cell differentiation and growth control, viral and chemical carcinogenesis, cellular and molecular immunology, hematopoiesis, computational biology and epigenetics; macromolecular structure, the physics and engineering of diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapeutics, the development of imaging and therapy systems involving ultrasound, x-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance, light and electron optics; nanotechnology, molecular imaging and much more. We hope that you will find them as exciting as we do.
