1. Arizona State University - School of Life Sciences Since I came to ASU and SOLS in 2005, I feel like I've joined a real community with a sense of shared mission. Taking SOLS forward will be an exciting challenge and an amazing opportunity to work with wonderful students, staff, faculty and alumni to build on the strengths found in SOLS' highly collaborative, interdisciplinary framework.
We all owe Rob Page a debt of gratitude for the hard work and leadership he has shown molding SOLS from very separate departmental entities and advancing what is now such a cohesive framework. His success is admirable. I know that we all wish him well and look forward to working with him as our new Vice Provost and Dean of College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
How will our next three to five years look? I want to hear your ideas as we go forward about the "SOLS to come." We have some significant challenges before us, from the changing budget picture to the historically low funding rates for sponsored projects. To be sure, facing these challenges will call on us all to choose approaches that are creative and proactive, while also sustaining, and even expanding our mission. However, we are drawing from a place of strength in this effort, able to capitalize on the strong infrastructure built in SOLS and supported by the many new faculty hires of the past few years, the significant grant funding we historically have had and development of interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degree programs. In particular, I envision three new initiatives for SOLS under my tenure 1) pursuit of multidisciplinary, collaborative research proposals, 2) the establishment of new technologies to enhance classroom education, and 3) the extension of innovations in graduate education, including a move toward interfacing biology with art and design programs, and promotion of training in creative scientific communication strategies.
What is ahead can and will be built with some of the world's most creative scientists, students, educators and creative partners. What more could a director wish for?

2. Australian National University - College of Medicine, Biology and Environment The ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment (CMBE) brings together biological, clinical, population health and environmental sciences in four schools: the John Curtin School of Medical Research, the Research School of Biology, the School of Health and Psychological Sciences and the Fenner School of Environment and Society.
4. California Institute of Technology - Division of Biology Welcome to the web pages of the Division of Biology at the California Institute of Technology. In its history of more than 75 years, the division has provided many of the major research advances that have made biology the premier science of the 21st century, and has trained many of the world’s most eminent biologists. The division at present has 38 professors of various ranks, who in their classes and laboratories have approximately 100 undergraduates, 100 graduate students, and 160 postdoctoral scholars, as well as more than 250 staff members. We occupy parts or all of seven buildings on the Caltech campus; we also operate a marine laboratory 50 miles from campus. Each building is devoted to state-of-the-art educational facilities and cutting-edge laboratories.
We have three major research emphases: Structural, Molecular and Cell Biology; Developmental and Regulatory Biology; and Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neuroscience. In each area we are trying to solve one of the great problems of modern biology: How do the proteins and other components of cells interact to provide a marvelous nanomachine of more than 100,000 integrated parts, a machine that has numerous extraordinary functions and can reproduce itself? How does a single cell become, by division and formation of new cell types, an entire multicellular organism, which in the case of humans has thousands of different cell types and more than 1 trillion different cells in specific places, communicating to form complex organs? How does the brain, the most complex organ of all, work to allow calculations beyond those of any computer, as well as to demonstrate amazing sensory capabilities, emotions, and consciousness?
The pages in this site give in detail the research program of each of our laboratories, lists of our recent publications, and include the most recent version of our division's annual report, with a summary of the work of each of our students, postdocs, and faculty. If you are a high-school student looking for a university to attend, an undergraduate looking for a graduate school, a graduate looking for a postdoctoral position, or a postdoc looking for a faculty position, you have come to the right place. We are embarked on a grand adventure. We hope you'll be able to join us.

5. Columbia University - Department of Biological Sciences For more than 250 years, Columbia has been a leader in higher education in the nation and around the world. At the core of our wide range of academic inquiry is the commitment to attract and engage the best minds in pursuit of greater human understanding, pioneering new discoveries and service to society.
7. Cornell University - Office of Undergraduate Biology The Office of Undergraduate Biology provides comprehensive, high-quality academic and research advising services to prospective students, current undergraduates, alumni and faculty. Our primary mission is to serve the diverse needs of our students while ensuring that they successfully navigate the biology major and achieve their academic and career aspirations.
8. Duke University - Department of Biology Among Research I Universities, Duke University hosts one of the few broad "Biology Departments" in the country, providing students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to learn and perform research in a highly integrative and interactive setting. Our department hosts over 45 active faculty research laboratories studying areas spanning developmental biology, cell biology, molecular biology, ecology, evolution, organismal biology, and genomics. Undergraduates benefit from having these world experts present the topics of their research passions in the classroom, exposing them to both the fundamental principles and the latest results or controversies. PhD students join research teams either through our own extremely flexible graduate program in Biology or through a diverse array of interdisciplinary programs, such as those spanning the Nicholas School of Earth and Ocean Sciences or the Medical School. The department interacts heavily among the diverse disciplines represented within it, with other Duke University departments, and with programs at the many other nearby universities. Come visit, and see how we do "Biology with a big B!"
9. Ecole Polytechnique - Departement de Biologie Nul ne doute encore de la revolution qui bouleverse les sciences de la vie et leurs applications. Le changement d'echelle dans les connaissances a gerer et a valoriser necessite la mise en oeuvre de nouvelles technologies s'appuyant fortement sur les sciences de l'ingenieur, comme l'informatique, la chimie, l'optique ...
10. ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) - Department of Biology The mission of the ETH Department of Biology is:
- to provide research and academic education in Life Sciences at the highest international level of excellence;
- to generate, share, and apply new knowledge with special emphasis on the cellular and molecular foundations of life;
- to train undergraduate and postgraduate students so that they acquire the conceptual background and practical skills necessary for successful careers in Life Sciences;
- to maintain a scholarly environment that promotes professional and personal growth of students and department members alike.
