Biology, Physiology Concentration, B.S.

The physiology concentration in Biology is designed for students interested in professions in healthcare, biomedical research or physiology and anatomy. Students in this concentration learn how bodies work and how that activity integrates with the anatomy of the organs, tissues, cells, and molecules of that body. It prepares students for medical, dental or pharmacy school, or physician assistant programs; it also prepares students for graduate school programs or work in biomedical research, clinical research, or forensic or medical testing. It is also a suitable background for those interested in medically-related industries such as pharmaceutical or medical device sales, tissue donation/recovery, or MS programs for becoming a prosthetist/orthotist.

A region's richness

A region's richness

Biology isn't all microscopes and petri dishes. The department has a number of professors whose research takes them 鈥 and many of their students 鈥 into the field to study the visible world and its creatures. Whether helping Dr. Vincent Cobb in his study of the thermal ecology of snakes in the region or assisting Dr. Brian Miller in his research on hellbenders, one of the largest (and some would say ugliest) salamanders in the world, Biology majors will find that there is plenty to see and learn about right here in middle 乐播传媒入口.

Research that matters

Research that matters

For more than a decade, Dr. Elliot Altman has explored the mysteries of peptide therapy research. His work has been part of a process that could revolutionize the treatment of types of arthritis and cancer in years (as opposed to decades). (His research also includes discovering ways to increase the efficiency of certain alternative fuels.) Motivated students in the Biology Department can be part of that process or other fascinating areas of work that makes a difference in people's lives.
