The faculty members on the BMB Program Committee are from the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics and Computer Science. Other Biology and Chemistry faculty teach courses that are part of the BMB major. The professors have a wide range of experience and cover many areas of specialization. Lectures and labs are taught by faculty. Rhodes does not utilize graduate teaching assistants. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on original research projects.
