- All Xavier biology department students can complete a research project if they choose to and most do, and many students begin working in research labs as early as their freshman year.
- There are opportunities for summer research with Xavier faculty on and off campus, and we have many connections in the local community and beyond to help students find the best research opportunity for them.
- Students are encouraged to travel to professional conferences to present their research, and those trips are often funded by Xavier.
“The people in the Biology Department foster an enjoyable atmosphere for learning and great times. Undergraduate research has been an invaluable experience that has allowed me to discover which fields of biology that I am truly interested in, and which directions I want to head in the future.” - Clayton Traylor, Environmental Sciences 2019
