The academic endeavors of the faculty, staff and students as well as the courses and the research activities of the Department of Biological Sciences cover a broad spectrum of biology, from molecules and cells to tissues and organisms to populations and ecosystems. The Department is composed of over 30 faculty, about 50 postdoctoral fellows, over 30 research technicians, over 60-70 graduate students, about 200 undergraduate majors, and 11 administrative staff. The Department is housed in the Biological Sciences Building, the adjoining Molecular Biology Stevenson Center and the Learned Lab buildings. These buildings are integrated with the Medical Research Building III and the Medical Center North building, a manifestation of the overlapping research interests of the Department of Biological Sciences and the Medical School.
