Welcome!

At the College of Biological Sciences, discovery is a constant. It’s built into everything we do. And as part of one of the country’s largest public research universities, students and faculty have access to the latest technology along with abundant opportunities to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.

Our mission is to improve human welfare and global conditions by advancing knowledge of the mechanisms of life through breakthrough discoveries and to prepare today's students to create the biology of tomorrow. Our faculty and students are creating new knowledge every day and driving solutions to some of our greatest challenges.

CBS offers amazing education and research opportunities, but what you might not expect is the incredible sense of community. CBS students start their collegiate journey at the headwaters of the Mississippi where they meet faculty, make friends and learn biology in a living laboratory and continues back on campus with in classrooms and labs, study spaces and student groups.
