About Biology

Welcome to the Program in Biology, a component of Brown University's Division of Biology and Medicine.

Brown's Program in Biology comprises five basic science departments offering undergraduate and graduate study in the life sciences. Rather than granting specialty degrees in each department, the Program in Biology offers AB and ScB degrees in biology, the ScB in neuroscience, as well as master and doctoral degrees in a variety of biology-related areas.

All Program in Biology faculty are dedicated to providing the best educational and research experiences to undergraduate students and graduate and postdoctoral trainees. Their overarching goal is to help students deepen their understanding of biology at the environmental, organismal, cellular, and molecular levels.
