Mentored teaching and research programs foster a strong educational environment in the Department of Biology for both undergraduate and graduate students. Our research is primarily conducted within three focus areas: Cell and Developmental Biology, Neurobiology and Neuromechanical Systems, or Evolution and Ecology. The Department is closely affiliated with other divisions such as the School of Medicine and the Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, as well as organizations in Greater Cleveland that provide additional opportunities and resources to our students and faculty.
