The Department of Physiology and Developmental Biology was established in 2003 as part of the restructuring of the College of Biology and Agricultural. It houses the programs that were formerly part of the Department of Zoology. The Department of Zoology and Entomology was established in 1925. Physiology is the study of the functions of the body systems. Developmental biology is the study of how specific genes govern differentiation of cells, tissues, and organs with unique structure and functions. The degrees offered in the department prepare students for exciting careers in medicine, research, and other professional programs.
