The Department of Biology offers a BS and MS program in Biology, in addition to a PhD program in Cell and Molecular Biology. Active research is conducted in environmental biology, marine and aquatic ecology, genetics, cancer biology, microbiology, molecular and cellular biology, neurobiology and immunology, plant physiology, animal physiology, and entomology. The Department is situated at the lower end of the AUB Campus facing the Mediterranean Sea. It is a four-floor building and includes faculty offices, graduate student offices, teaching and research labs, a natural history museum, and a computer lab.
Dr. Michel Bariche
(representing AUB), with 3 prominent
marine experts, made a major contribution to the Mediterranean Sea marine
sciences. They assessed more than 500 native marine fishes, identifying those
species that are threatened with extinction so that appropriate conservation
actions can be taken to improve their conservation status.
