Research Areas

A key goal of the Department of Biological Sciences is to promote world-class research in areas that are central to biology now and into the future. Faculty interests are currently identified in and among three broad areas: Biodiversity, Ecological and Environmental Biological Research; Cellular and Developmental Biological Research; and Physiological Research. These themes allow our strong participation in longstanding and well-developed research directions, as well as foster innovations in newly emerging areas of biology and life sciences.
