Studies in Biology at EMU

If you’re interested in biology, you’re interested in life. Humans, animals, forests, streams and soil … these are subjects of concern and fascination.

At EMU you’ll work side by side with others who share your interest as you conduct experiments, analyze data, study diagrams, debate issues and take field trips. Biology students have the privilege of working with faculty on research projects in biology.

Recent examples of student research include projects on the genetics of aging, the impact of a high salt diet on hypertension, the organic production of blueberries, and methods of tracking coconut rhinoceros beetles to their breeding sites.
