The Department of Biology is located in the Cowles Life Science Building. This facility supports teaching and research in biochemistry, botany, cell biology, developmental biology, ecology, evolution, genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, neurobiology, physiology, and systematic biology.
Undergraduates have the opportunity to learn and perform a variety of modern research techniques such as chromatography, electrophoresis, gene sequencing, phase contrast and fluorescent microscopy, tissue culture and ultracentrifugation. In addition, the Life Science Building houses a greenhouse, animal research facilities and walk-in controlled environmental chambers.
Our current facilities are in various phases of remodeling and new construction. We're very excited about these new state-of-the-art facilities which will allow us to integrate teaching and research across disciplines, true to our vision of undergraduate education in the sciences.
