Studying the spatial patterns of biodiversity and their underlying evolutionary processes in the tropics, finding a genetic link between diabetes and Alzheimer’s, collaborating with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on cancer research – these are just a few of the research boundaries that City College biology faculty are pushing. And the students mentored in their labs have traveled as far afield as the Galapagos Islands, tracing the footsteps of Charles Darwin, and as close to home as Harlem, looking at health disparities in this changing neighborhood.
Biology students at City College pursue Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees. The PHD is offered jointly by the City University of New York and City College, with areas of specialization in cell and molecular biology, neurobiology, and ecology and evolutionary biology.
