Faculty and Research

Waterloo Biology is a broad-based, research-intensive department that has recently undergone considerable renewal. The faculty comprise a dynamic collection of scientists whose research interests encompass the major topics of the life sciences. Graduate students carry out thesis projects under the supervision of individual faculty members, and make major contributions to the research programs. We provide extensive opportunities for students to learn and grow within a supportive, intellectually challenging environment.
