Recent Theses, Publications and Conference Presentations

Graduate students in Department of Biological Sciences have the opportunity to pursue independent, in-depth research projects under the supervision of faculty members. Advanced research projects produce theses, technical papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and conference presentations. These products offer evidence of the graduate student’s technical and communication skills, and preparation for employment or continued graduate study.
