About Us     Academics     Faculty     Alumni    Graduate Programs      Research


Our strength in biochemistry, genomics, microbiology, nutrition, and the biomedical sciences at both the basic and applied levels creates the foundation for students at all levels to explore the wonders of the Life Sciences. With our new organization, we anticipate growth in our research competitiveness and emergence of new course offerings, particularly in the fields of genetics, bioinformatics, and clinical medicine. We already have strong linkages with our new Biological Sciences department and expect new initiatives such as biosafety to emerge. With Agriculture at the center of our college, we are committed to our outreach mission to the State of New Hampshire.
