Welcome to The Department of Biology at the University of Virginia.

We have an exceptional breadth of cutting edge research and educational opportunities.  Our internationally recognized faculty and staff nurture a vibrant learning and research environment, which help our graduates access the manifold career opportunities in many emerging disciplines within the life sciences.  With the hiring of new faculty, a recent move to a state of the art research building, and the fastest growing undergraduate major here at UVa, we are poised to strengthen an already extraordinary department.

Announcing the 31st Annual Richard D. Katz Undergraduate Research Symposium, April 29, 2015. Talks from Biology Distinguished Majors begin at 2:00pm in GIL190, followed by an awards ceremony and reception at 4:15.  A Poster Session will take place from 12-2:00 in the hallway of New Gilmer.  Please join us!
