Department of Biological Sciences

About the Biological Sciences Program

Discovery. This word captures our purpose, commitment, and vision. As a leading department in a major research university, our mission is to effectively integrate learning, discovery, and engagement in an inclusive environment. The best learning is experiential, and leads to a clear understanding of how discoveries are made, how science is conducted, and how ideas are communicated. The best learning is facilitated by faculty who are active in research and who can all engage students in the excitement of biology. And the best learning results in alumni who are well-prepared to successfully pursue their chosen careers.

As we discover the many facets of biocomplexity, from vast ecosystems to the structure and function of individual molecules, we remain committed to our mission. Our faculty, staff, and students are engaged with the communities of science and education, the worlds of industry and business, and our alumni and friends. To each individual who joins us, we promise opportunities to experience the excitement of discovery in biology. We welcome and encourage you to become a part of our team-as a student, alumnus, corporate partner, scientific collaborator, or a member of our faculty and staff. Join us on our journey of learning, discovery, and engagement. Discover Biology at Purdue!
