Biology

BiologistBiologists study living organisms: how they grow, reproduce, and interact among themselves and with their environment. Specialization in a particular aspect of biology is common (for example, neuroscience, which includes study of the brain, sensory perception, and nerve cell signaling). Regardless of the area of specialization, in modern biology full understanding of a process requires integrating studies at many levels of organization: populations, individual organisms, organ systems, cells, and molecules.

Biology LabBioengineering, or Biomedical Engineering, advances knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine, and improves human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Biomedical Engineering combines engineering expertise with medical needs for the enhancement of health care: engineering knowledge and skills are developed and applied to define and solve problems in biology and medicine.
