BIOL3400 Developmental Biology - Biology

Major in Animal Biology
Animal Biology is the study of the huge variety of animal life on Earth. As a Department of Life Sciences with a central focus on the biotic environment, there is a need to adopt a theoretical and practical approach to the biology of animals how animals integrate into the environment, and how environmental change may affect animal populations in the future.

The major examines the evolutionary origins of the various groups of animals - their structure, physiology, behaviour, interspecific associations, defence mechanisms, ecology and conservation.

Major in Applied Plant Sciences
Plant Sciences is the scientific study of plant life and development. The Applied Plant Sciences major examines selected aspects of plant sciences through practical and theoretical studies to foster the desire for continued exploratory investigations into biological solutions to real-world problems.

LEVEL I
A minimum of 24 credits from Level 1, 18 of which must be FPAS courses and must include:


Pre-Pharmacy

Students interested in pursuing a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree should major in Biology or Chemistry (with a Biology minor). For the best preparation, we recommend a double major in both Biology and Chemistry. Students should review the admissions requirements for the pharmacy schools of their choice. We recommend that students complete the following courses (along with the requirements for a major in Biology, Chemistry, or both) for preparation for admission and success in pharmacy school:

  • BIOL3120 Internship in Biological Sciences
  • BIOL3310 Molecular Genetics
  • BIOL3420 Human Anatomy
  • BIOL3440 Human Physiology
  • BIOL3500 Applied Pharmacology
  • BIOL4310 Biochemistry
  • BIOL4400 Immunology
  • BIOL4450 Cell Biology
  • CHEM3300 Analytical Chemistry
  • MATH1380 Introduction to Statistics
  • MATH1510 Calculus I

During summers, students should consider internships or volunteer experiences at local hospitals or pharmacies to gain practical experience. Most students take the PCAT exam in June of their junior year and begin to apply to pharmacy schools during the summer following their junior year. Early application using the PharmCAS application service is strongly recommended.

Professor Nicola Stonehouse

Research is the Stonehouse group spans virology and RNA biology, applying novel approaches to the study of virus replication and assembly in three main research areas:

  1. Picornaviral replication, especially the role of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of foot-and-mouth disease virus and processing of the viral polyprotein. This project is funded by BBSRC.
  2. Design of novel virus-like particle vaccines (e.g. to polio and EV71) and design of generic vaccine scaffold systems. This project is funded by MRC and by WHO
  3. RNA aptamers as tools and delivery of aptamers into the skin as potential novel therapeutics. This project is funded by MRC.
