Biological Sciences Department at the University of Delaware currently has approximately 40 faculty members and at least one additional faculty member is expected to join us in 2010. Several distinguished scientists from other departments at the University of Delaware hold joint appointments in Biological Sciences and further broaden our base of research expertise. 

Our graduate program also participates in the "Human Health Initiative", which gives our graduate students additional training opportunities in pediatric research with scientists based at the Nemours Research Foundation, A.I. Dupont Hospital for Children.

Learning outcomes

At the core of our program is the exciting research carried out by our graduate faculty. Our Department's research efforts are recognized nationally and internationally.
