Creating Leaders in Research, Education and Service
The Department of Biological Sciences faculty have research interests that integrate molecular, cellular, and developmental biology with ecology, evolution, and behavior. The department features facilities well-equipped for contemporary research in laboratory and field biology, as well as an interdisciplinary field of study in bioinformatics.
The Department of Biology presents a series of lectures and seminars each fall and spring semester. Join us for interesting and exciting topics from invited presenters across the country and some from right here on campus. Check out the full list of seminars!
