Organismal Biology Departmental Faculty
FAU’s Department of Biological Sciences houses research labs working on a wide spectrum of organisms, from fruit flies and worms to turtles and sharks. Areas of interest include developmental biology, conservation biology, marine biology, physiology, animal behavior and morphology/evolution. Undergraduate and graduate students are studying how organisms communicate, pick their mates, move and migrate. Students are learning how animals and plants interact and evolve. Studies are being conducted on the molecular mechanisms behind why organisms sleep and age and the genetics behind how animals think and behave.

FAU’s Department of Biological Sciences faculty members view integration of disciplines as a defining characteristic to understanding scientific principles. The department offers a Ph.D. Program in Integrative Biology, Masters degrees and Bachelors degrees.
