The Biological Sciences Department at Ohio University offers a graduate program that includes faculty from both Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences (Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine). Faculty and graduate students conduct research on a wide array of biological topics spanning from molecules to ecosystems, and from basic to applied research. Faculty and students develop collaborative networks both within and outside the department as they conduct their research. Within Ohio University, the Ohio Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Studies (OCEES), the Interdisciplinary Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program bring together researchers with common research interests from across diverse departments.
The Department offers MS and PhD programs in Biological Sciences.
