About Integrated Biology at The University of Iowa

With many positive changes to our curriculum, iBio is taking this strong record into the future.

The iBio program highlights the uniqueness of our departmental research, which centers on determining the fundamental nature and behavior of living organisms and systems. Our research integrates multiple organizational levels, from the molecular to the ecological, as well as multiple scales of biological time, from embryogenesis to aging to phylogenetic analyses, in a wide array of experimental organisms. Key areas of strength include: the molecular evolution of meiosis and of speciation, the molecular genetics of sexual reproduction, the establishment of asymmetry in early development, and the molecular basis of synaptic specificity and axonal targeting.


The graduate program in integrated biology prepares students for careers in academic research, science education, industry, government, and a variety of other careers in which their scientific expertise can be used.

The Pomerantz Career Center offers multiple resources to help students find internships and jobs.
