The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Vaccinology and Immunotherapeutics Programme for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students - University of Saskatchewan, 2020
Applications are accepted year round. Students may begin their programme in Jan, May or Sep of each year
The vaccinology and immunotherapeutics program provides Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students with opportunities to study cutting-edge advances in the field vaccinology and infectious diseases. It combines interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary academic learning with practical experience under the mentorship of a team of experts focused on two main streams:
Scientific Bases – Understanding the basic biology of vaccine/immunologics development.
Social and Public Health Issues – Researching the complex social, health care, legal and ethical issues related to vaccination and the use of immunotherapeutics.
Students have access to a diverse group of faculty and world-class research centres. These facilities include the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM), the Canadian Light Source (CLS), the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO) and the International Vaccine Centre (InterVac). In addition, students can learn from the wealth of industry knowledge available at Innovation Place – one of the most successful university-related research parks in North America.
Scholarships are available and are awarded on the basis of academic merit.
In addition to potential funding from your department, there are scholarships and awards available to all eligible students. There are also special programs for international students from China and Mexico.
Graduate students in a thesis or project based program pay tuition three times a year for as long as they are enrolled in their program.
In addition to tuition above, students also pay fees for programs like health and dental insurance, a bus pass, and other campus services. The amount you need to pay depends on if you are taking classes full time or part time, and if you are on campus or not. The table below assumes you are on campus full-time.
