Welcome to the Department of Biology at Georgetown University!

Our department’s laboratory design promotes meaningful and productive interactions while numerous study spaces support innovative and collaborative education. This, combined with our strong ties with the research-oriented Georgetown Medical School, the NIH and other universities in the DC area, provide an exceptional environment for learning and scholarship.

Members of the Biology department are committed to undergraduate and graduate education and research. Our students learn the fundamentals of the life sciences, gain skills in communication and obtain knowledge of experimental design and critical analyses of data that will benefit them throughout their lives. We have worked to create a strong sense of collegiality between students and their professors at the undergraduate and graduate level.

We are excited to welcome Professors Linda Green and Liz Bailey as Biology’s newest faculty members joining us in the Fall 2017 semester.
