Biology research at UD

Our faculty are dedicated to research and scholarship. This dedication shows itself in our students, through a myriad of opportunities. All of the department's achievements and aspirations spring in some way from faculty members' creativity, talent, and their dedication to scholarship, teaching, and professional service.
