Supporting the Biological Sciences
UC Berkeley's Division of Biological Sciences generates profound shifts in our understanding of living organisms. CRISPR genome engineering, immuno-oncology, telomeres and telomerase, the proto-human "Ardi," and the molecular behavior of insulin - these are examples of world-altering discoveries that originated at Berkeley. New insights - many uncovered in our laboratories and in the natural world - fuel the widely accepted belief that the life sciences form the defining research enterprise of the 21st century. Our students learn from and work with some of the world's leading scientific minds, deciphering the interplay of living organisms from the intracellular to the ecosystemic to the planetary.

Supporting Graduate Student Fellowships
Graduate students are existential to the research enterprise, teaching and our institutional reputation. Biological Sciences seeks to expand the number of graduate fellowship endowments. This increases stable, multi-year support to ensure the size and quality of our incoming graduate students.
Our excellence is in part measured by our talent. Our faculty drive our scientific research and teaching missions. We are strengthening our foundation from which we can recruit and retain the best minds in areas of science, in areas of strength, and areas or across disciplines where we are moving.
