› What is MBiotech Classic? Our Program has evolved over the course of more than two decades, launching its cohorts of uniquely trained professional graduates, year after year, into the dynamic and fast-paced community that is today’s biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries.
Watch for the ‘Classic’ wordmark to learn snippets from the Program’s inception.

Originally conceived by visionary Professors Paul Horgen and Ulli Krull, the Program has seen both sweeping change, as well as a periods of careful and meticulous incremental progression, guided by recommendations and input from across our stakeholders. These include students, alumni, Faculty, staff and industry sponsors.
However, some core philosophies from MBiotech’s foundational proposal, dating back to 1999, survive to this day, in recognition of the principles that our academic predecessors envisioned—correctly—would be fundamental to the notional realm ‘where science meets business.’ These important elements of our collective past are celebrated throughout these pages with special shout-outs that call to mind these principles, and serve as a testament to our proud heritage as a graduate academic Program within Canada’s eldest and most prestigious university.
