Brown's Program in Biology comprises six 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.
The Program in Biology is a component of Brown’s Division of Biology and Medicine, which also includes the Warren Alpert Medical School. Together with Brown's seven affiliated teaching hospitals, the collective research enterprise in the life and health sciences attracts $195 million in sponsored research funding per year.
