Who We Are
The Teacher-Scholar Model
We have over 20 graduate faculty members that represent the breadth of the biological sciences.
Our faculty and our graduate curriculum is organized loosely into four research focal groups: Cell and Molecular Biology; Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics; Neuroscience and Behavior and Integrative Plant Biology. These focal groups provide graduate courses within each area. We encourage you to contact individual faculty with whom you share interests. Additionally, some biology faculty members participate in the interdepartmental Structural and Computational Biophysics Certificate Program and play prominent roles in the Center for Molecular Communication and Signaling, the Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, and the Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society.
