The Guelph-Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry offers a fantastic environment in which to pursue your M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree.
Minuscule particles that approach the atomic scale often display new and exciting properties that differ from those in the bulk material. Nanoscience studies these materials that are used across all the other science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering.
Toxicology studies the adverse effects of chemicals on humans and the ecosystem. To fully understand the adverse effects, Toxicology draws from a broad array of related fields of study.
