Department Chair: Andrea Ward

From cells and molecules to organisms and ecosystems, biology majors study life at all levels, at home and abroad.Adelphi's Biology department provides access to extraordinary research opportunities, which include exploring ecology and marine biology in Australia or researching cancer, obesity, aging, thermoregulation, bioremediation, neurotoxicity, skeletal development, gene and organismal evolution, spider ecology and marine biology in laboratories on campus and in the field.

Through small classes, labs, hands-on research opportunities and personal advising, biology students receive a solid foundation in all areas of biology that prepares them for more than 200 biology-related careers and provides the groundwork for professional training in medicine, dentistry and other health sciences.
