Welcome to the Department of Biology
Welcome to the Department of Biology! Our department comprises a vibrant group of researchers across the spectrum of biological sciences and with internationally-recognized strengths in bioinformatics, comparative physiology, ecotoxicology, macroecology and experimental evolution. In addition to our undergraduate degree in Biology, we offer the interdisciplinary program in Biomedical Science and participate in other interdisciplinary undergraduate programs, including Environmental Science and Biopharmaceutical Science. At the graduate level, we offer MSc and PhD programs in Biology and share in collaborative programs in Chemical and Environmental Toxicology, Bioinformatics and Environmental Sustainability.
The state-of-the-art laboratories within the Biosciences Complex offer an unparalleled experience to our undergraduate students. Easy access to natural ecosystems such as the Mer Bleue Conservation Area and Gatineau Park complements the lab environment by providing opportunities for field work. Research labs in adjacent buildings host cutting-edge analytical and microscopy facilities as well as greenhouses, an aviary, and an aquatics facility for fish, amphibians and reptiles.
