*If BIOCHEM 2B03 and 2BB3 not completed
The course is oriented for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in programs which require training in marketing but who have no previous background in commerce. The purpose of the course is to provide the students a high level overview of contemporary marketing concepts and a hands-on experiential component leading up to a marketing plan.
This course is intended for students who wish to enhance their skills and knowledge in those areas of business that lead to successful entrepreneurship and/or small business management.
An intensive two-term research project carried out under the supervision of a member or associate member of the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences. The results will be presented to the department in a seminar or poster session as part of a senior thesis symposium.
This course will be a practical and hands-on foray into the world of commercialization of biomedical research. Students will conduct an in-depth examination of biomedical research with the goal of establishing a favoured avenue for commercialization. To this end, students will work in small groups with both individual and group assignments. The effort will be self-directed and under the mentorship of a content expert. Students will also benefit from lectures and guidance from commercialization experts in the McMaster Industry Liaison Office (MILO).
Nucleophilic substitutions at carbonyl centres, aromatic chemistry, carbohydrates, applications of spectroscopic techniques in organic chemistry. Registration priority will be given to students for whom this course is a program requirement.
