There are many opportunities for students to conduct biological research at Loyola. In addition to the independent research component of a number of experiential courses, there is the opportunity to work closely with faculty members on biology research and honors research projects. Over the past several years, student enrollments in biology's two research courses (BL481 and BL482) have varied from 8—20 students in any given term.
