Understanding Our World
Healing Our World
All Biology faculty members share a passion for cultivating a love of research in students. Our state-of-the-art Biology laboratories allow instructors to guide students in advanced research methods. At Baylor, students will use technology that most do not see until medical school. From dissecting a plasticized cadaver to microdissection of the inner ear of a mouse, students will be surrounded by top-tier technology and instruction.
Cancer, Limnology, Tropical Diseases, Molecular Biology, and Neuroscience are a few of the areas of Biology being analyzed by faculty members at Baylor University. From the city level and up, professors partner with various private and government institutions to conduct applicable ground-breaking research.
Our doctoral students participate in cutting-edge laboratory and field research on models ranging from the Zika virus to blue whales. These studies result in high-impact publications in top-tier scientific journals.
Participation in research promotes creativity and effective thinking skills needed to solve the problems of our world. Whether in the classroom, the lab, or the field, and research allows students the opportunity to generate and analyze data.
Eva Doyle, PhD, Chair of the Department of Public Health, reflects on developing a study abroad program, Baylor in Brazil, with her husband. Started in 2006, the program will return to Brazil in 2023 for the first time since COVID-19-related restrictions.
