Message from the Chair

The WashU campus has been bustling all semester! Students returned to in-person classes, and many activities resumed on campus. It has been refreshing to watch migrating students walk past Rebstock Hall at the top of each hour. Our hallways are again filled with chatter, laughter, and, of course, talk of exams, class registrations, and living arrangements. 

Over the past nine months, the Biology Department was involved in Arts & Sciences' strategic planning process, a comprehensive school-level strategic planning effort. Many of our faculty, staff, and students provided feedback and discussed the actions that we need to take to achieve excellence. On December 6th, during a kickoff event for the “Power of Arts & Sciences,” a weeklong series of virtual events highlighting the launch of the strategic plan, Chancellor Andrew D. Martin announced WashU's plans to construct a new state-of-the-art building for Arts & Sciences. The Biology community is excited to be part of these transformative changes.

As we welcome 2022, we wish you a happy and healthy new year! 

We hope you can take a minute to update us on your personal and professional accomplishments. We also welcome you to share your memories of your time spent at Washington University.
