The Department of Biological Sciences is within the College of Arts and Science and is housed in the Biological Sciences Building, the adjoining Molecular Biology Stevenson Center, and the Learned Lab. These buildings are interconnected and with the Medical Research Building III and the Medical Center North building, a reflection of the overlapping and integrated research activities of our department and the School of Medicine. Students and faculty of the two schools share resources and core facilities and participate in trans-institutional programs and centers, leading to informal and formal collaborations and synergistic research endeavors.
In addition to our dedication to impactful science and education, the Department of Biological Sciences is committed to supporting and respecting the equal and fair treatment of all persons, regardless of their race, socioeconomic status, disability, religion, culture, gender, or sexual orientation.
