Biology Overview - Overview PowerPoint - Podcast

Profiles of Biologists are available on this site to provide insight into the activities, educational preparation, and daily challenges of individuals working in the field of Biology. Profiles cover a variety of career paths and educational backgrounds.  Each is also available as a PDF to facilitate sharing with students or others.

While these are useful tools for glimpsing into the working lives of different biologists, it may also be helpful to network with professionals who can provide even more input, or answer your specific questions.  Bear in mind that these profiles are simply snapshots of a group of biologists at one point in their career.  It is possible that these people have moved on to other jobs, perhaps expanded their education, or made other changes since the profile was created.  These individuals are not available for individual contact, but have provided candid descriptions of their education, work experiences, and career paths.

If you are a biologist or a student currently studying biology, and would be interested in contributing a profile to this site, please download and complete a biologist or biology student profile form.  Thank you!
