Departmental Research & Interests

Faculty in the Department of Biological Sciences at Clemson are active in research that ranges from cells to ecosystems. Their work is grouped into four focus areas: Ecology, Evolution, & Organismal Biology; Microbiology; Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology; Pedagogy & Instructional Biology.

Some faculty are active in interdisciplinary projects, or projects affiliated with other departments on campus. Check out our affiliations and facilities here.

A more detailed description of graduate faculty research interests can be found at this resource.

Faculty with a research interest in Pedagogy and Instructional Biology have a particular interest in teaching and learning. We develop and test new teaching practices to produce more successful biology students. Pedagogy and Instructional Biology blends biological science with social science to evaluate teaching innovations through quantitative and qualitative analyses of empirical evidence.
