The College of Biological Science (CBS) is internationally recognized for its world-class research in the life sciences. Our mission is to expand the understanding of life, from DNA to cells to complex ecosystems. Currently, we have 100 full-time faculty, 50 full-time staff and more than 300 graduate students making important discoveries about health, nutrition, ecology, evolution, genetics, neuorscience, physiology and more.
