Animal Biology, publishes high quality papers and focuses on integration of the various disciplines within the broad field of zoology. New directions in biological research especially from the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953, as well as new techniques made available in sciences like biochemistry and genetics were at first only slowly integrated by evolutionary biology. Biology pre-health students and others from UNC traveled to Spain over the summer to gain clinical hours, cherished memories and insights from physicians on what it truly means to be a healthcare professional.
These fields include: immunology (the study of the immune system and how it works to protect us from harmful organisms and harmful substances produced by them); pathogenic microbiology (the study of disease-causing microorganisms and the disease process (epidemiology and etiology)); microbial genetics (which is linked to molecular biology); food microbiology (studying the effects of food spoilage); and so on 2.
Rafael de Sá, professor of biology, has been awarded more than $400,000 from the National Science Foundation for his research on the diversity and evolution of a frog species found in South America. Offers an inquiry-based, intensive laboratory experience in which students have an opportunity to design and conduct independent research projects, applying approaches and techniques used in cell and molecular biology.
Our faculty members are world-class researchers and teachers who share an excitement for the life sciences. The course now incorporates an optional fourth year, meaning students can either leave after three years with a BA or choose to stay on and complete an extended project under the supervision of an academic member of staff (which can be lab or field-based), in addition to advanced research skills training.

Indeed by the middle decades of the 1990s, evolutionary biology was already being wedded to medicine, and especially epidemiology as interest in emerging pathogens grew and as the principles of evolutionary biology were increasingly applied to more practical ends not only in medicine, but also in agriculture, computer sciences, and even robotics.
