Pushing Boundaries. Inventing Solutions.
The department of Biological Sciences at Rensselaer encompasses a diverse and inherently interdisciplinary portfolio of research. Our faculty, graduate students and undergraduates are deeply involved in the work of pushing boundaries and inventing solutions. They are exploring areas at the forefront of modern biology, including molecular mechanisms of aging, nanobiology and nanotechnology, genetics of model organisms, microbiology and host-pathogen interactions, and synthetic biology.
