Biology students at The City University of New York are encouraged to participate in the extensive research programs of the biology faculty. Their research activities have recently been funded by various agencies, including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and a number of private foundations, including the American Cancer Society and American Heart Association. Participation in research is one of the best ways for students to learn biology first-hand, and to appreciate how scientific methodology is used to answer important biological questions.
The department has excellent research facilities for cell and molecular biology, as well as well-equipped research laboratories and core facilities. Opportunities are enhanced by affiliation with other city institutions and cooperative efforts with other divisions of the City University and the American Museum of Natural History. The Biology Department at Queens College also offers programs of courses and research leading to the PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center in the subprograms of cellular, molecular, and developmental biology; evolution, ecology, and behavior; physiology and neurosciences; and plant sciences.
