The Department of Biology at Wake Forest is a diverse team of scientists and students investigating the processes of life at all levels. While many other research universities contain specialized and isolated departments based on biological sub-disciplines, we value the interdisciplinary atmosphere and advances that a full-spectrum department promotes. The full-time faculty currently stands at 22 professors, and the student body includes 35 Master’s and Ph.D. students and approximately 200 undergraduate Biology majors. Research is central to our mission, with almost all majors joining faculty and graduate students outside of class in our laboratories and field sites. Much of our research is supported by federal grants, permitting ambitious approaches that prepare graduate and undergraduate students for careers in academics, medicine, biotech, and other areas.
