Honours Biophysics Advisors

In the Honours Biophysics Program we normally recommend that you specialize in the upper years in one of three main streams:

  1. Molecular and Cell Biology
  2. Biology at the level of Organisms
  3. Applied Biology, mainly Medical Physics

For 1. and 2. you can contact:


  • The Biochem advisors are here.

If you are interested in taking courses in the Microbiology department a good person to talk to is:

For 3. I suggest:

  • Alex McKay (mac...@physics.ubc.ca) who is often working at the hospital, so arrange an appointment by email first.

On the basis of your consultations with the above faculty please put together a plan of electives so I can approve your program.
