Departmental Research Activity

Our courses and research laboratories explore life processes from a variety of perspectives, and are also involved in developing theories and concepts into practical applications. Discovery and the expansion of the knowledge base from the molecular/biochemical to the organismal levels provide opportunities in health care, industry, and government. Over time, interactions of organisms with each other and with their physical environment produce changes in both the organisms and the environment. Developing an understanding of processes also leads to practical applications in business, law, and public policy.

A dedicated faculty using excellent, modern facilities provides the classroom, field, and laboratory experiences necessary to help the students achieve their goals. If you are interested in pursuing a research project at either the undergraduate or graduate level, please see the Faculty Directory to view each faculty member's specific areas of research interest. Develop your own research project, or align your research with that of a faculty member.
