Facilities and Resources:
The Biology Department is located within the Cora and Bayard Clarkson Science Center. Each faculty member’s personal research lab is equipped with specialized instrumentation essential to their research. All faculty members have undergraduate students as well as graduate students conducting research in their labs each semester and over the summer.
The Biology Department also has three fully-equipped, recently-renovated teaching laboratories at the Science Center building. Human Anatomy lab is taught at the Clarkson Hall on Clarkson’s downtown health-sciences campus in the human cadaver laboratory facilities.
