The faculty of the Department of Biology at Loyola University Chicago are pleased to learn of your interest in graduate study with us. You will find a group of scientists in this department who are excited about their teaching and research, and who are dedicated to providing MAMS students with a program in which they can demonstrate their ability to excel at rigorous coursework. The department is broadly-based, so students receive quality graduate coursework and training in many of the major areas of contemporary life sciences leading in to medical training.
The Department of Biology has extensive resources to support superior teaching and research in all the major areas of contemporary biological sciences to prepare students for medical school, other graduate or professional studies, teaching, or careers in industry or government.
The department is housed in the state-of-the-art Michael R. and Marilyn C. Quinlan Life Sciences Education and Research Center. This innovative facility features modern teaching and research labs, where students learn to operate the latest equipment used in scientific experiments, and engage in faculty-guided research; an artificial stream, the only one of its kind in the Chicago area; and a "green roof," which resembles a native Illinois prairie.
In addition, other greenhouses provide students with a convenient location for field research, and the indoor environments make experimentation possible no matter what the weather conditions. The building itself is energy efficient with sunshades, and the green roof holds water to help prevent street flooding. With Lake Michigan just steps away, students have another natural resource at their fingertips.Students have access to the Cudahy Library collection, which includes more than 200,000 volumes, subscriptions to more than 300 biological journals and several relevant databases on CD-ROM. The library also provides Loyola faculty and students with free access to several subscription-based electronic journals via the Internet
