If you imagine research to be the work of remote scientists who wear white jackets, work in isolated laboratories, and are concerned only with abstract theory, then it's time you became acquainted with the faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences at UNH.

Many of the research projects pertains to topics you read about in the newspaper each morning or discuss at the dinner table each night. Our faculty brings their considerable knowledge and experience to bear on issues that concern us all, from improving the quality of the milk our children drink to supporting the development of sustainable industries. Yet our faculty not only seeks solutions, they provide information to advance scientific understanding and help create an informed public opinion.
