At the College of Biological Sciences we learn biology by doing biology, and our faculty are on the cutting edge of research and discovery in the field. Here you will find a collection of news, features and opportunities concerning research at CBS.
From the return of bison to Cedar Creek to welcoming our largest-ever incoming class and breaking ground on a new conservatory, 2018 was an eventful year here at the College of Biological Sciences. Thank you to the College of Biological Sciences community for sharing in the memories!
First, let me take this opportunity to say once again what outstanding faculty we have here at the College of Biological Sciences. Case in point, Clarivate Analytics recently published its 2018 Highly Cited Researchers list. Of the 21 University of Minnesota faculty listed, seven are associated with CBS.
Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories recently launched a call for proposals for seed grants for future research projects at the field station. These seed grants aim to spark new scientific inquiry and research at the field station and facilitate preliminary, higher risk efforts focused in up-and-coming creative spaces (e.g., techniques, emerging theory). Field stations, however, focus on places with particular qualities amenable to sustaining longer-term research.

I recently completed my three-year review for Provost Hanson. I was asked to describe my leadership philosophy, evaluate my achievements and identify barriers. Putting this document together reminded me once again just how fortunate I am to lead this College.
