    The Ateneo Department of Biology emphasizes on research. Students are given the opportunity to carry out their own research projects in the final year of the program. A mentorship program is followed whereby students in their final year are matched to a faculty member with whom they confer regularly on their own research concerns. To catch up with the trends of time, the department constantly improves and modernizes its facilities for both teaching and research through acquisition of various equipment for nucleic acid and protein analysis; microscopy; microbial, plant, and animal cell and tissue culture; natural products isolation; toxicology and other physiology experiments; and for studies in ecology, biodiversity, and conservation biology.
