Programs in the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences are arguably among the most challenging and competitive at McMaster. 

You need good academic standing, a sense of direction, and networking opportunities to survive here – not to mention a break once in awhile. The BBSS tirelessly operates to provide all of this and more to your student community.

You can get academic and career-oriented support by accessing our resources and coming to events. There’s also the Brotein mentorship program, which forms connections within the Department’s 500 undergraduate students to provide support and foster growth. When you’re not in class, lab, or studying, there is ample opportunity to keep in touch with your friends through social offerings, including the annual March formal.
