The Biology Department believes that all Biology majors should plan to do some independent research as part of their Capstone Experience. Research is a rewarding and demanding undertaking that allows students to focus, in depth, on a problem while accumulating valuable new knowledge and skills. An intensive research experience can help you assess your interests and skills so as to make an informed choice about life after college. A variety of research opportunities are linked below.
