Current Faculty

Below is an alphabetical listing of Current Biology faculty. Please note you can search by first or last name. All of Biology faculty are affiliated with at least one of the four interdisciplinary graduate programs and you can limit your search to only those faculty affiliated with a particular program. In addition, you can search for only those faculty who can chair graduate student Masters or PhD committees. And you can combine these criteria to further limit your search.
