Biology is the study of living organisms: their structure, function, organization, origin, and evolution. That’s why each year, our professors welcome students into their labs or into the field, working side-by-side on original research, asking questions that no one has answered and looking for solutions that are yet to be discovered. We explore a wide range of fundamental biological questions with a focus on molecular cell biology at all levels, from molecular structure to human disease. On this module you’ll attend lectures, practical classes, workshops and supervised time in a studio or workshops, and you’ll take part in fieldwork study and external visits.

The faculty in the Department of Biological Sciences maintain high standards for both teaching and research. The crown jewel of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences research buildings houses Biology, Chemistry and Physics laboratories. A study into the molecular basis of living systems, molecular biology aims to understand, at the most basic level possible, the nature and interactions of the units that make up living organisms.

Tilly’s lab seeks to promote a deeper understanding of the genetic and epigenetic drivers of cell lineage specification, differentiation and death, and to then utilize the information gained from these studies for development of innovative new technologies to improve human health within and across. Traditions of medicine, collective knowledge from physicians, works of prominent historical figures such as Aristotle eventually coalesced into the field of study we know today as biology.

The Department is housed in the Science Center where our state of the art equipment and facilities are available to students during courses and for those that take the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty in their independent research and honors theses projects. One primary goal of biological sciences is to deduce the molecular bases of all chemical processes that take place in living organisms.

Rafael de Sá, professor of biology, has been awarded more than $400,000 from the National Science Foundation for his research on the diversity and evolution of a frog species found in South America. Offers an inquiry-based, intensive laboratory experience in which students have an opportunity to design and conduct independent research projects, applying approaches and techniques used in cell and molecular biology.
