Graduate Program

Research Areas

The research interests of the faculty collectively represent most areas of Biology but can be described in five main overlapping concentrations:

Our program is unusual for the extent of interaction that occurs among the various research laboratories in these areas. Thus, while becoming expert in a particular research area, students also have the opportunity to assimilate a broader perspective on biology that often leads to more imaginative research ideas. Different laboratories also collaborate to share equipment, methodology, and experimental approaches, a practice which amplifies the intellectual and technical resources available to each individual research project.
Please visit the individual concentration pages or the Faculty & Research section to learn about research interests of faculty members who are currently accepting graduate students. If you have a strong interest in working with a particular faculty member, you may contact them by email to discuss opportunities.
