Teaching and Research Go Hand in Hand

The biological sciences faculty is committed to producing leaders of conscience through the teacher-scholar model.  Stand-alone lab courses and research encourage students to ask questions.

Students are taught to observe, evaluate and solve problems.  Our faculty provide students with a model for critical thinking.  We know that's how you learn best.

Our faculty is committed to excellence in teaching and research. So much so that several of them have been honored with the university's highest awards for teaching and research. 

Our faculty have national and international society citations for research excellence, appointments to the NIH and NSF research review boards, memberships on editorial review boards for major scientific journals, and invitations to speak at prestigious conferences.

Three of our faculty members were awarded Marquette's Lawrence G. Haggerty Award for Research Excellence, the university's top honor for research.

Our research team includes undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students.
