Each biology student works on a research project with a faculty mentor during the last three semesters at Carroll. The process is known as the Capstone experience. During the Capstone, students are taught the basic skills needed to plan and initiate a biological investigation including problem identification, information science, and considerations of instrumentation, experimental design and analysis. Working in close cooperation with a faculty mentor, students familiarize themselves with a specific biological problem and prepare a formal research proposal In Capstone, students develop sufficient mastery of their system of interest to allow them to acquire data appropriate for the resolution of their specific research problem.

All students present their work during the Science Symposium in April. The following collection of Posters represents some of the most recent work conducted by biology students at Carroll University.
