The Biology Department believes that the undergraduate research experience is an important aspect of a student's education. The Biology faculty at Iona College maintains active research programs in neurobiology, cell-signaling, plant molecular biology, and population ecology, studying organisms from baker's yeast to the common reed plant to human brain cells. For brief descriptions of the research performed by each of the faculty members, please refer to the "Faculty" section of the webpage and click on an individual faculty member.
We encourage our students to perform research during their undergraduate careers, where they learn important skills
(technical and intellectual) that will benefit them as they pursue careers in medicine, education, basic and applied
science, as well as any other career they choose. The Biology students are not only given opportunities to perform research,
they also present their research at national and regional conferences (see below) and have been authors in peer-reviewed
