As the Head of the Department of Biology, I am excited about the diverse and rich opportunities for undergraduate training and research at Ishik University. The 21st century has been termed the century of Biology, with biomedical, biotechnological, biodiversity and environmental issues at the forefront of nearly every facet of our society. Biology provides the core for understanding and addressing these problems, from the cellular and molecular to the ecosystem and landscape levels of complexity. Biology forms a natural bridge to other disciplines such as chemistry, psychology, sociology, medicine, history, philosophy, geography and anthropology. Within the Department, undergraduate students experience the breadth of biology in the classroom, laboratory, and the field. Students are actively engaged in research in cell, molecular, physiology, neuroscience, plant science, genetics, ecology and evolution laboratories of the diverse and dedicated faculty in the Department. I welcome you to explore the countless educational and training opportunities in Biology, the science of life, at Ishik University. On behalf of the Ishik University staff and myself, I would like to invite you to explore the opportunities that we offer in the Department of Biology. We hope you will select Ishik University for your learning and career endeavors and we look forward to serving you in the near future. I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about our Department.
