Biology Department Information

The Biology Department has 21 faculty, over 1,200 undergraduate majors, and over 65 graduate students and post-docs. Our faculty take an integrative approach to biology, encompassing all levels of biological organization from molecules to ecosystems. Our Department is committed to excellence in both research and teaching, and we strive to provide a rigorous, balanced education in Biology for all our students.

We share our offices and laboratories with Physics, Chemistry and Environmental Science Departments in the Science Research & Teaching Center (SRTC), Science Building 1 (SB1), and the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB). This close proximity with other disciplines helps foster interdisciplinary research at Portland State University. Teaching and research laboratories are further supported by the Herbarium, Invertebrate and Vertebrate Museums, extremophile DNA and microbial culture collections, an aquatic organism rearing facility, greenhouses and an electron microscope facility.

Planning to visit? We are located in SRTC room 246 between SW Mill and Montgomery on SW 10th Ave. For directions, see the PSU campus map. If you don't find what you need here, please contact the department.
