Welcome to the Department of Biology

The Department of Biology provides comprehensive training for both undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, we provide strong programs in such areas as Animal Behavior, Biochemistry, Cell and Developmental Biology, Computational Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Neurobiology, Physiology, and Plant Biotechnology.

We also maintain close associations with other departments, particularly in the School of Medicine and the Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. In addition, cooperative programs with numerous institutions outside Case, including the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, and Holden Arboretum, extend the range of resources and opportunities available to biology students.

We encourage you to explore our website and discover the variety of educational and research opportunities that are available to both undergraduate and graduate students.
