Our interdisciplinary, fundamental research has implications for solving some of today’s most important challenges.
Based in the departments of Biology and Chemistry, our faculty conduct research into areas spanning protein structure and function, chemical biology, molecular genetics, developmental biology, genomics, and molecular evolution.
Research by Biology Faculty
Biology faculty explore a wide range of questions ranging from gene regulation in embryo development to the evolution of fungi. Our research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and other private and public funding sources.
Research by Chemistry Faculty
Chemistry faculty explore questions in protein structure and function, underlying chemical principles, and applications of those principles to biological phenomena. Our research has been supported by the NIH, the NSF, and other sources.
