Welcome to Biological Sciences

In pursuing a detailed knowledge of the natural world, biologists make important contributions to society, including effective management of natural resources, novel technologies and medical techniques, and new insights into social organization. Basic research is essential to this process, as the broad advancement of scientific knowledge is the foundation for truly novel insights.

The mission of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough is the advancement and dissemination of such knowledge, through original research and effective teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels.
