WELCOME!

Laurier Biology is an exceptional centre of learning and research, strongly committed to meeting the challenges of contemporary biology by fostering the integration of all levels of biological organization from molecules, organelles, cells, tissues and organs to organisms, populations, species, and ecosystems. Rather than “taking apart” the complex interactions that occur in and among biological systems and studying them separately, we aim towards a “putting together” approach meant to reflect better the intricate biological reality of life on earth. Teaching and research in biological systems and their interactions are conducted under three major interlocking interdisciplinary themes: A) cell, molecular and microbial biology and genetics; B) biodiversity, evolution and ecology; C) physiology and toxicology. Our graduates are noted for their ability to identify and articulate the most pressing biological issues facing  society, to pinpoint the key elements of those issues, and to devise appropriate and effective strategies to tackle the necessary research as well as to implement the resulting solutions. Our graduates are full, active, and eager participants in their society.

CORE VALUES!

    * Academic excellence – our commitment to high standards of academic achievement and integrity
    * Creativity – the creation of new knowledge
    * Collegiality – fostering a learning community of students, staff and faculty
    * Dedication – to creating the conditions that allow all of our students to articulate, refine, and achieve their goals 
    * Integration – of form and function at every level of biological organization

People at Laurier

Dr. Gabriel Moreno-Hagelsieb, SHARCNET Chair;  Associate Professor: Biology The ambitious goal of having an overall human genome sequence available resulted in the development of better technologies for DNA sequencing. Microorganisms were also put into genomic projects and biological databases are continuously inundated with huge amounts of information. My main goal is to use genome sequences to understand how genes are organized into functional modules, which genes keep their functions across organisms, and which are sources for functional innovation.
