The Department of Biology has spacious undergraduate teaching facilities and some of the finest research laboratories in the world. Undergraduate researchers, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and professors interact to create a rich atmosphere of intellectual activity and participation in the rapidly advancing field of biology.
Be inspired by the rich diversity of the living world – from molecules to cells, organisms, populations, and ecosystems – in one of our undergraduate programs in Biology, Ecology, or Cell and Molecular Biology.
Work directly with our outstanding and accessible professors to gain practical research experience, which often leads to publication in scientific journals. You can also participate in the Faculty of Arts and Science Undergraduate Research Day.
Enroll in the MSc and PhD programs and do research in one of the department's areas of strength, which include molecular biology, molecular genetics and genomics, population and community ecology, and behavioural ecology.
Get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment used in genomic and biotechnology research facilities in our Graduate Diploma in Biotechnology & Genomics. With small class sizes and the experience of running your own research project, you will get a head start to pursue your graduate training and skills to enter the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
