Biology majors at Seattle Pacific University graduate with a broad understanding of living organisms. Through immersion in scientific inquiry and problem solving, you’ll develop fundamental skills and knowledge for entering a wide range of careers, including those in medicine, environmental science, research, and teaching.
Biology students Emily Stohler (BS Cellular and Molecular Biology, 2019) and Nicholas Lee (BS Cellular and Molecular Biology, 2019) presented their project, "Human Walking Behavior at Crosswalks," at the 21st University of Washington Undergraduate Research Symposium on May 18, 2018. The lead author was Azariea Bonner-Harris (BS Physiology, 2018), and their research was mentored by Dr. Cara Wall-Scheffler, Professor of Biology. Congratulations to Emily and Nick on representing SPU!
At the 16th Annual Erickson Undergraduate Research Conference on May 11, 2018, three Biology students were recognized for outstanding project presentations. Azariea Bonner-Harris (BS Physiology, 2018) was awarded Best Oral Presentation during the Biology session. Her research analyzed human walking behavior in crosswalks, and was advised by Dr. Cara Wall-Scheffler, Professor of Biology. Cibelle Nassif (BS Cellular and Molecular Biology, 2018) and Kara Eckley (BS Ecology, 2019) were two of the Best Poster Presentation awardees. Cibelle's research examined the localization of dopamine expression within a species of green algae, and was advised by Dr. Rick Ridgway, Associate Professor of Biology. Kara's research analyzed the effect of salinity on the ability of sea anemones to excrete alarm pheremones, and was advised by Dr. Ryan Ferrer, Associate Professor of Biology. Congratulations to Azariea, Cibelle and Kara on their outstanding work!
