Biological Sciences

Biology is one of the most rapidly evolving and diverse sciences in the modern world, exploring all aspects of life from biomolecules to ecosystems. The Department of Biological Sciences is committed to advancing our understanding of biological structure and function, and developing new tools and technologies to address current and emerging problems facing all living organisms. Connections will be forged between molecules, cells, tissues, organs, organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems, highlighting the need to explore all levels of biological interactions. Programs emphasize the organism as the key element in studies of the development and evolution of form and function, and the role in and adaptations to the environment. Based on a core of fundamental biological principles, our programs explore diverse areas such as organismal biology, environmental biology, genetics, cell biology and development, physiology, ecology, behaviour, and systematics and evolution. The department focuses on the integration of research and teaching expertise to create opportunities for growth and novel synergisms in the training of future leaders in the field.
