Dear Alumni, Friends, and Colleagues: Discovery is the essence of science. It is an experience and a process that compels humans to explore and understand the world and the universe in which we live.
In July, the Department of Biology was renamed as the new School of Biological Sciences to better represent the size and structure of the faculty research areas. The School has major thrusts in three research divisions: Cellular and Molecular, Ecology and Physiology, and Genetics and Evolution. The new organizational structure enhances the faculty’s ability to educate students and generate new scientific knowledge.
