Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry and Medical Genetics, otherwise known as BMG.

BMG, one of the basic science departments of the Max Rady College of Medicine (MRCM) in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, is located on the Bannatyne Campus of the University of Manitoba. In addition to laboratories, common research support facilities and equipment are available to our faculty and students. The department is home to biochemistry, molecular biological sciences, and medical genetics expertise, practiced in an intellectually enriching research and teaching environment in the MRCM and Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS).  Excellent and dedicated faculty members work closely with graduate students, genetic counselling trainees, post-doctoral fellows, residents in genetics, and clinical geneticists to advance our understanding of complex and diverse biological processes. BMG also participates in an accredited Royal College Training Program in Medical Genetics as well as Canadian College of Medical Geneticists fellowship training. Our faculty are locally, nationally, and internationally recognized and have received numerous prestigious awards for their accomplishments in teaching and research. Moreover, our faculty members contribute significantly in providing health care services to individuals and families affected with genetic and metabolic disorders.
