Reaching into the Future
The faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences have been highly successful in generating external research funding over the past years. Funding of on-going research projects is presently supported through the following agencies:
- National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- National Science Foundation (NSF)
- U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
- U.S. Department of Education (Title III Program)
These funded research programs allow for student participation and support, as well as the acquisition of scientific equipment and instruments that have led to the development of highly successful ongoing research programs.
Today, the department consists of 20 faculty, 55% of whom are actively engaged in ongoing research programs.
