32. University of Maryland - BiologyWe live in a world of unprecedented advances in the biological sciences. Biologists now have the molecular tools and the theoretical models required to answer long-standing questions in genetics, neuroscience, evolution, cell biology, and many other disciplines
34. University of Michigan - BiophysicsBiophysicists at Michigan are working in the fields of Structural Biology, Spectroscopy and Microscopy, Computational Biophysics and Bioinformatics, and Biophysical Chemistry. Approximately 80 graduate students, post-docs and professors work in our well-equipped laboratories. The graduate program offers a flexible curriculum of exciting courses related to these fields, taking advantage of the resources available at a major research University.
38. University of Pennsylvania - Department of Biology Our mission is to combine internationally recognized research programs with a commitment to the very best in undergraduate and graduate education. Work in the Department is impressively interdisciplinary. For example, faculty research programs include the characterization of global ecosystem biology; the use of model systems to dissect gene expression, mammalian development, behavior, disease and evolution; and the development of genomics tools to study the architecture of gene expression and genome evolution. This research breadth allows us to tackle important questions in biology in an environment that encourages discussion and collaboration across different disciplines. From such strength we have built outstanding research and educational programs in Ecology, Evolution & Biodiversity; the Molecular Basis of Behavior; Plant Science; Microbial Biology; Cell & Developmental Biology; Molecular Biology & Genetics and Genomics & Bioinformatics that are available for undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral scientists.
As a community, our Department is comprised of 35 faculty, 72 postdoctoral scientists, 65 graduate students and 52 research and departmental staff members. We occupy three adjacent buildings - Leidy Laboratories, Goddard Laboratories and the new Carolyn Lynch Laboratory. These buildings surround the jewel of Penn's campus - the BioPond within the James G. Kaskey Memorial Garden.
Recognizing the revolution taking place in the Life Sciences, particularly in applying genomic approaches to diverse and important biological problems and developing a molecular understanding of behavior, The School of Arts and Sciences has selected Biology as a critical department to develop. This support a) helped establish the Penn Genomic Frontiers Institute at the University, whose current co-Director is Professor Junhyong Kim of our department, b) resulted in the construction of the Carolyn Lynch Laboratory building and c) will result in the construction of the new Neural and Behavioral Sciences building that will house an interdisciplinary group of Biology and Psychology faculty and students.
These are exciting times in the field of Biology and in our Department. I encourage you to browse our website.

39. University of Tokyo - Department of Biological Sciences The Department of Biological Sciences was established in April 1995 by the merger of three separate departments which specialized in zoology, botany and anthropology. The new department consists of the following four sections: Zoological Science, Plant Science, Anthropology and Evolutionary Biology. The Department of Biological Sciences has 50 faculty members and a total enrollment of about 300 students (250 graduate students and 50 undergraduates).
40. University of Toronto Scarborough - Department of Biological Sciences The interests and expertise of our faculty ranges the full breadth of biology, from the molecular and cellular details of development or disease to the ecology of populations and biodiversity of ecosystems.
At the undergraduate level, our department offers five specialist programs that include Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution; Cell and Molecular Biology (with or without the Co-op option); Human Biology; and Integrative Biology. We offer both major and minor programs in Biology, as well as the option to pursue a specialist or major program in Neuroscience, in partnership with the Department of Psychology. We also offer two highly unique programs in partnership with neighbouring Centennial College: one in Paramedicine and another in Applied Microbiology. Beginning in 2010-11, we will also offer major programs in Human Biology and in Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution.
At the graduate level, our faculty currently supervise approximately 65 graduate students, both M.Sc. and Ph.D. candidates. Moreover, our department is a centre for postdoctoral and research associate training and supervision. Individuals from our faculty are members of several University of Toronto tri-campus graduate programs and maintain a tri-campus network of resources and expertise to draw upon.
The research, teaching and administrative facilities of the department are housed in the architecturally-renown Andrews S-wing as well as the new Science Research Building opened in 2008. Both these buildings reside directly along the picturesque Highland Creek Valley that is a beautiful and dominant feature of the campus’ park-like environment.
I hope that you find this website useful to learn more about the department’s world-class research programs, innovative undergraduate programs, award-winning teachers, dedicated and professional administrative and technical staff, and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for faculty and graduate students.
