About Biology Education, contests etc.
University of Texas at San Antonio Department of Biology
The Department of Biology includes 30 tenured or tenure-track faculty who teach and lead research programs in the biological sciences. Research and teaching expertise/interests include biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, developmental biology, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, physiology, plant hormones and gene expression, and virology. Research awards in the Department from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and private foundations total more than $8 million annually. Members of our faculty serve on national peer-review panels and are on the editorial boards of well-known scientific journals. State-of-the-art research laboratories provide both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn, participate, and acquire skills in leading areas of biological study.
Public Health Degree Planner
Explore all the possible connections between the four areas of the Public Health Degree Planner—academic degrees, departments, careers, and topics. Using the Specific Path function, you can start with any of these four elements and click through them in any order you choose to create a defined path. For example, if you know what career interests you, choose it first and then explore the following path: 1. Career you're interested in -> 2. Degrees associated with that career -> 3. Departments in which you can get that degree and pursue that career-> 4. Topics associated with the department, degree, and career you selected ->

Low Dose Radiation Research
The goal of the DOE Low Dose Radiation Research Program is to support research that will help determine health risks from exposures to low levels of radiation. This information is critical to adequately and appropriately protect people while making the most effective use of our national resources.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute New Generation Program for Scientific Teaching
The goal of the New Generation Program is to develop an entire generation of new resources to enhance undergraduate biology education. We promote the participation of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, the HHMI Teaching Fellows, as vital educational resources by providing them the training necessary to become outstanding mentors and classroom teachers. We study the impact of this training on participating Fellows, the undergraduates they teach, and the faculty advisors with whom they work.

We provide: *Up to $20,000 a year in scholarship support *Paid research training at the NIH during the summer and after graduation *Mentoring, research experience, career guidance, and skill development Minimum requirements: *You must be a U.S. citizen, national, or qualified non-citizen (See http://ugsp.info.nih.gov/citizenship.htm for more information.) *You must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a full-time student at a four-year, accredited undergraduate institution *You must have a 3.5 GPA or higher or be in the top 5% of your class *You must be from a disadvantaged background (See http://ugsp.info.nih.gov/disadvantagedbackground.htm for more information.) The NIH is the world’s largest biomedical research institution and is the Federal Government’s focal point for medical research. Applications are available in October of each year and are due February 28. We encourage you to visit our Web site at http://ugsp.info.nih.gov. This site includes comprehensive information on the NIH and our scholarship program, including online application materials. Note: In addition to the UGSP, the NIH offers a number of other training opportunities. For more information visit www.training.nih.gov.
ActionBioscience.org is a free bilingual (English/Spanish) education website from the American Institute of Biological Sciences. The site’s current subject emphases are sevenfold: (1) biodiversity, (2) the environment, (3) evolution, (4) biotechnology, (5) genomics, (6) a “new frontiers” section that encompasses a variety of other topics at science’s growing points, and (7) an education section that addresses advances in teaching. All content is peer-reviewed, editorial operations are run by AIBS staff, and many articles are accompanied by lesson plans that are written by professional educators, keyed to US National Science Education Standards, and recognized by the National Association of Biology Teachers for professional development credit to NABT members.
Augustana College Biology Department
Biology, one of the largest majors at Augustana, offers programs and courses for students with many diverse scientific interests. These varied interests can lead to many different careers: students can use a Biology major in areas such as research, industry, teaching, environmental organizations, and a great variety of professional health fields. The Augustana biology program has many strengths that aid in preparing students for these diverse career possibilities.

Colorado Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit
The Unit works toward three basic objectives: research, education, and technical assistance. The Unit emphasizes research related to specific management problems where results have a high probability of being applied. The program remains flexible to reflect changing cooperators' needs. The long-term fishery effort emphasizes a diversity of applied management projects having broad statewide and regional applicability. The wildlife component of the Unit emphasizes sampling and analysis of quantitative methodologies for management. The fisheries and wildlife activities are diverse and integrated with Unit cooperators. The results of research are transferred through formal graduate teaching and technical extension.
