The Guelph-Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry is one of Canada"s largest and most successful graduate schools. The Centre is housed in the Chemistry departments at the Universities of Guelph and Waterloo, two of Canada"s highest rated Universities. A diverse team of world-class faculty from both Departments provides research opportunities in a myriad of chemical and biochemical research areas. Please survey our website to see the many areas.
If one considers the comfortable and safe living environment of two midsized cities, the culture and sports activities and the great sense of community within the Departments and the Universities, there lies a wonderful and fulfilling opportunity for study and growth.
