Research

Learning in biology is not confined to coursework. One of the hallmarks of the UW-Stevens Point Department of Biology is our commitment to faculty-mentored undergraduate research. A high percentage of our students participate in laboratory and field research projects with Biology faculty mentors. Many students also spend the summer conducting research at UW-Stevens Point and at a variety of cooperating institutions.
 
Students interested in gaining research experience at UW-Stevens Point should talk to their advisor or contact one of the researchers listed below.
