The faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences are engaged in cutting edge research. They mentor graduate students and undergraduates who work in their laboratories. These students often appear as coauthors on scientific publications. Much of this work is supported by external funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The items in this submenu can be used to browse the research interests of each faculty member. These are oganized into several broad cartegories: ecology and evolution, microbiology and immunology, molecular and developmental biology, animal physiology, and science education and student development. However, the research of many of the faculty members straddle two or more areas. The table below lists the faculty laboratories and specific research interests of each. Clicking on the research interests will bring you to the appropriate web page.
