Welcome to UNM Biology

With classes and research spanning genes to ecosystems and beyond, we are home to major research programs like the Museum of Southwestern Biology, the Sevilleta Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER), the Center for Evolutionary and Theoretical Immunology (CETI), and New Mexico Natural Heritage

As a leader in funded research and scholarly productivity, our graduate and undergraduate students learn about research by doing it. 

Undergraduate training programs in the department like U-RISE at UNM, the PREP at UNM program, and the Sevilleta REU sites program, as well as Graduate training programs like the Museum Research Traineeship, provide additional opportunities for students to engage with research. 

Please look around to see all of the activity across our department and find a place for your own study of Biology!
