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 to 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, obtain knowledge of experimental design, and learn how to critically analyze 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 Professor Kasey Christoper as Biology’s newest faculty member who joined us in the Fall 2018 semester.
