Biologists are at the forefront of science attempting to find solutions to global problems and answers to intriguing questions about animals, plants, and microbes at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecosystem levels. The problems we prepare our students to tackle are exciting and endless, including causes of and cures for disease, adaptation to changing environments, how adult bodies develop from a single-celled zygote, mitigation of environmental pollution, preservation of biodiversity, and how cells and organisms communicate with each other.
