The Department of Biological Sciences offers a range of undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training programs. Home to a vibrant community of life scientists, the department’s research spans the scales of biological organization from molecules and cells to organisms, populations, species, and communities. An emphasis on interdisciplinary and collaborative research gives faculty and students opportunities to investigate a diverse array of living systems using a wide variety of research approaches and tools including X-ray crystallography, molecular assays, and computational genomic analyses to advanced microscopy, electrophysiology, and field research in Antarctica, Africa, and the Pacific Ocean.
