Biology is the science of life. The study of biology encompasses molecular, cellular, and physiological processes, evolutionary diversity, ecological relationships and global systems. Biologists study life from prehistoric times to organisms alive today and model how life may change in the future.
WSU Tri-Cities provides excellent preparation for medical school and other health care fields (such as optometry, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, or physical/occupational therapy) through the pre-health sciences track.
GREAT THINGS HAPPENING IN BIOLOGY
Through biology labs at WSU Tri-Cities, students have the opportunity to not only read about the foundations of science, but be an active participant in experiments and other hands-on projects.
Faculty in the field
Biology assistant professor Tanya Cheeke performs research that examines plant-soil-microbe interactions in a variety of ecosystems, ranging from grasslands, to forests, to agricultural systems.
A team at WSU Tri-Cities is studying how to transplant fungi to restore native plant populations in the Midwest and Northwest. The results will be used to inform ecological restoration efforts.
