Biology and Biological Science

Is science your favorite subject in school? Are you curious about living things and their environments? Then you’ll love Biology! When biologists talk about living things, they mean much more than just animals. Biologists study everything from algae, to one-celled animals like amoebas, to plants, to invertebrate animals, to mammals, to the habitats they live in!

Check out these successful biologists:

Jennifer O’Leary is a marine ecologist and an educator conducting research on how humans change marine ecosystems and how we might make management changes to protect marine ecosystems and species. Dr. O’Leary works with management and conservation agencies to help them find ways to use scientific data in conservation. Currently, as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, Jennifer is investigating how ocean acidification might affect marine habitats that are important for abalone in collaboration with the California Department of Fish and Game.



Jane Goodall is a primatologist who redefined man. She has changed our perceptions of primates, people, and the connection between the two. “Chimpanzees, more than any other living creature, have helped us to understand that there is no sharp line between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. It’s a very blurry line, and it’s getting more blurry all the time”. To learn more about Goodall, click here.




 Shirley Marie Tilghman is the President of Princeton University and a leader in the field of molecular biology, this Canadian conducted pioneering research on the role genes play in the development of the mammalian embryo. Throughout her career, Dr. Tilghman has always made time to be a mentor to other women who are just starting their careers in science.

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
