- About Us
Our faculty have been exceptionally successful in their research efforts, garnering many national awards in the past few years. Per-faculty research expenditures are among the highest at the University of Illinois, and more than half of our undergraduate students have a research experience with one more of the faculty.
The department’s research portfolio has recently evolved and now includes substantial efforts in areas related to biofuels — through the Energy Biosciences Institute, housed at the California-Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory — and human health.
