RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING , the Department
of Chemistry and Biology has chosen an
innovative path. With the intentional combining
of chemistry and biology, two disciplines
that are not typically housed together,
the department reflects Ryerson's unique
interdisciplinary and collaborative approach.
Our researchers in environmental
science, chemistry and biomedical science
are addressing critical issues affecting
human health and the world we inhabit.
Having launched its first specialized
Biomedical Science undergraduate degree
program in 2013, Ryerson is a relative
newcomer. But Dr. Warren Wakarchuk,
the department chair, says, "We have a bold
vision for growth. This program is a good
complement to our existing biology and
chemistry curriculum, and provides our
students with more choices."
Over the last five years, the department
has received significant research funding,
and added faculty members and PhD students.
Most significantly, in October 2016, we had
the thrill of opening our new, purpose-built
Ryerson University Research Facility in the
MaRS West Tower. Today, students and
faculty enjoy equipment upgrades and a
layout geared towards collaboration.
