A message from the Department of Biology

“The horrific killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others have shocked and saddened us all.  These are grim manifestations of ongoing racism, repression, and inflammation of hatred in our society.”—Amy Gutmann
The Department of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania affirms support for the life and value of all Black community members and acknowledges the pain that many are experiencing. We are committed to doing our part and taking concrete actions to form an inclusive, truthful, and compassionate academic community.
