What's New in the Biology Department

March 30, 2017

I'm halfway through my first year as chair and happy to report that the Biology Department continues to thrive. I hope you enjoy a look at some of the highlights from the past year:  

In other news, we've undergone significant renovations, including remodeled department offices, new labs, and a zebrafish facility run by Assistant Professor Celia Shiau.

Last August we held a retreat sponsored in part by donations from Boston-area biotech companies and friends of the department. The day included scientific presentations by faculty, students, and guests. Planning for next summer is in the works—please feel free to contact us if you are interested in sponsoring the event or supporting us through a gift to the Biology Department.

Keep in touch and let us know if you're on campus!
