Life Sciences

Main Content

The life sciences are a collection of disciplines that investigate the structure and function of living things from molecules to entire ecosystems. The life sciences are rapidly-advancing and thoroughly exciting fields of study that include: anatomy, animal biology, bacteriology, biochemistry, cell biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, genetics, molecular biology, plant biology, physiology, and virology. The life sciences are vital to further increase our understanding of human health, environmental issues, and broader matters that increase our understanding about the web of life on earth. The life sciences include Biology as well as Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. To fully understand the field, a strong background in chemistry, physics and mathematics is important.

Research interests in the life sciences include biochemistry, bioinformatics, biophysics, cancer biology, cell and computational biology, developmental biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, enzymology, gene regulation, genomics, genetics, infectious diseases, microbiology, neurobiology, physiology, plant science, proteomics, organismal biology, RNA biology, structural biology, virology, and theoretical biology.
