Biological Sciences

Medical laboratory science students observing samples under the microscope

Biological Sciences brings together students and faculty in search of solutions to biological problems—from medicine to freshwater ecosystem health. Use molecular tools to grow, modify, and characterize plants, animals, and microorganisms in the lab. Present results in classrooms, research symposia, and scientific journals. Michigan Tech students work and play in all seasons of our outdoor playground, the Keweenaw Peninsula.
