About Our Undergraduate Biology Faculty

  • Collaborate with and Learn from Internationally Respected Researchers and Educators

    Our biology faculty members are known worldwide for their specialties. Most have earned a PhD, and many remain active in field research or are widely published. These activities, however, do not divert them from their main purpose—to be enthusiastic and passionate teachers and to make themselves always accessible to their students. Our professors teach all of the biology classes at IUP.

    • Our professors organize student participation in international field research projects. South Africa and Honduras are among the host countries.
    • Experienced grant writers, our faculty have won federal funding from the departments of Defense, Energy, and Economics.
    • Our professors attract many students from abroad who wish to benefit from their expertise and the IUP research lab.
    • Many faculty members collaborate with students on field research and publishing projects. You may find yourself presenting findings at a professional conference.
