Our graduates are increasingly able to secure research assistantships, post-graduate internships, and pursue degrees at prominent institutions.
Working in the lab at Concordia provided me with experiences that more than prepared me for lab work that I now do every day. It allowed me to be ahead of many of my peers who didn't have as many lab-based classes and gave me a better understanding of the science. Working in the lab at Concordia University not only prepared me to do my thesis involving cancer research but also work in a clinical lab providing results that doctors use every day to make decisions on their care.

Since graduation, I have been working as a lab technician at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. A tissue culture lab will provide opportunities to learn important techniques to master in any scientific field, especially if one wants to go into clinical research. With a tissue culture lab, students will be able to work with a cell or tissue sample hands-on while they are still in undergraduate school. This is a strength that graduate school or a laboratory will appreciate.
