The Department -
The Department of Biological Sciences at Ohio University is the fulcrum of basic biological teaching and research on campus. Our mission is to provide excellent, transformative teaching experiences, and to function as a leading institution in biological research. Research -
The new Life Sciences Building opened in 2003. The University also maintains a 682 acre land lab adjacent to the campus available for both teaching and research. Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in the Department of Biological Sciences conduct research a wide array of biological topics spanning from molecules to ecosystems. Faculty and students develop collaborative networks both within and outside the department as they conduct their research. Within Ohio University, the Ohio Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Studies (OCEES), the Interdisciplinary Program in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program bring together researchers with common research interests from across diverse departments.
