Interdisciplinary Groups

Faculty within ILS specialize in many thematic research areas, including but not limited to the following interdisciplinary groups.

Research Group

Biology Education Research

The purpose of Biology Education Research at UGA is to promote research that requires integrated thinking about biology and university education and to develop interdisciplinary scientists who can do educational research and life sciences research. Graduate students and advisors will collaborate to develop a mentoring arrangement, training plan, and research objectives that will best prepare a student for his or her career goals.
Additional thematic groups of faculty can be found on our Training Grant webpage: Disease Ecology, Genetics, Glycoscience, and Tropical & Emerging Global Diseases.
