Biology as a discipline is continuing to expand its horizons at an astonishing pace, making this an especially exciting time to be a biologist. Our program draws strength from a long-standing tradition of combining research and teaching in ways that benefit both our students and our faculty. The historic and continued success of Reed biology majors demonstrates the effectiveness of our approach.
