Greetings from the Chair

Dr. Koopman Welcome to the Department of Biology and Marine Biology!

Whether it's using cutting edge technology to decode the molecular basis of cell function, SCUBA diving to measure the impact of global climate change on coastal habitats, or building virtual ecosystems to uncover hidden connections, students and faculty in the Department of Biology and Marine Biology are engaged in scientific inquiry across the range of the life sciences. Students in our department pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees in both biology (BA, BS, MS) and marine biology (BS, MS, PhD) that emphasize hands-on involvement in research and take advantage of our coastal setting and first-class facilities including the Center for Marine Science.continued >>
