Meet our Faculty

Faculty research in the Department of Biology and Wildlife spans the breadth of the biological sciences, from molecular biology to ecosystem science. Investigating emerging viral pathogens, microbes that detoxify environmental contaminants, the molecular genetics of obesity and diabetes, impacts of climate change on polar organisms and ecosystems, and more, our faculty work alongside graduate, undergraduate and high school students to address key issues of vital interest to Alaska and beyond. We invite you to meet a few of our faculty in these short videos. For links to websites for all of our faculty visit our faculty directory in the About B&W menu above.
