The biology curriculum is designed to provide students with up-to-date training in the biological sciences, including fields of concentration in ecology and evolution as well as molecular and cellular biology.
The highly interactive program offers a wide range of study options dealing with contemporary biophysics, cancer, cell biology, chemical biology, immunology, insect biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology and plant biology.
Students will learn principles of physiology and pharmacology and are given opportunities to integrate this information in problem solving scenarios.
Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology is an interdisciplinary doctoral program bringing together faculty and students from multiple departments and institutions at the University of Nevada, Reno, the Desert Research Institute and the Great Basin Institute.
Students and faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno have the unique opportunity to study within this specialized area of research with access to cutting-edge technology, such as a new functional MRI facility—a partnership between our Center for Integrative Neuroscience and the Renown Health medical center.
