Biology Faculty

  • The Biology Department at Saint Francis University features 14 full-time faculty, all of whom possess graduate degrees, and ten of whom are Ph.D.-level researchers. Each tenure-track professor was carefully selected to fill a specific niche within the department, such that we have experts in virtually all major fields of biology on staff. Most faculty have active research programs that overtly involve undergraduate students; you can read more about their research interests, teaching, and other activities in the faculty profiles below.

    Department Chair:    Dr. Marian Langer
