Get involved with hands-on research in your own backyard or across the world.

Our research is organized into three general areas:

  • Molecular biology
  • Stress physiology
  • Conservation biology

Each of these programs includes highly active faculty with specialized research labs supporting these programs.

In addition to individual labs there are several newly renovated shared facilities listed below, including a brand new animal care wing.

  • Genomics Facility
  • Molecular Biology Facility
  • Ecology and Conservation Facility
  • Proteomics/Neurobiology Facility
  • Collections Facility

Additionally, we maintain several research collaborations with the Sanford School of Medicine and frequently have access to additional instrumentation (SEM, confocal microscope, etc.).
