A Message From the Dean
For many people, the word “biologist” summons the image of a researcher working alone over a microscope. As you explore BioSci’s website, or better yet, become more engaged with our School, that perception will quickly change. As the study of life, biology is the most dynamic of sciences. It is where answers originate to grand challenges, such as climate change, devastating diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes and more. To achieve these crucial goals, our faculty, researchers and students work in teams, sharing ideas and expertise to innovate multi-faceted solutions. They are as likely to be out in the field performing hands-on investigations as in the laboratory. There has never been a more exciting and critical time for biology. I invite you to explore BioSci’s website to learn more. Better yet, come see us! Whether you are a prospective student, UCI graduate or member of the general public, we welcome you to discover how BioSci is leading the way for a brilliant future.
