Faculty in the College of Biological Sciences conduct research on a broad range of subjects, from molecules to ecosystems, and make discoveries that improve human health, restore the environment, provide new sources of renewable energy and enhance agriculture.
The quality of College of Biological Sciences (CBS) faculty is reflected in the number of articles they publish in Science and Nature, the leading peer-reviewed, scientific journals. During the five-year period from 2003 to 2008 they accounted for more than a third of the total articles by U of M faculty published in these journals (40 out of 117), even though CBS is a relatively small college.
CBS faculty are also committed to training the next generation of scientists. They welcome students into their research labs and guide them through independent research projects. Their enthusiasm for hands-on education is one of the reasons CBS attracts such highly qualified students.
