Faculty Research & Scholarship

Due to the breadth of study in biology, and driven by a mission to educate our undergraduate and graduate students, the University of Dayton Department of Biology faculty has developed a wide spectrum of research interests. Additionally, this faculty plays a key role in one of the department's strongest differentiating aspects, that is, the way it integrates undergraduate and graduate education, especially in the research arena.

Our faculty's are dedication to research and scholarship 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.
