Your support increases opportunities

The Department of Integrative Biology promotes discovery and learning at all levels of biological organization (molecular, cellular, organismal, population, community, and ecosystem). Our integrative focus reflects the importance of strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in research and teaching. We strive for excellence and synergy in our coordinated programs of teaching, research, and service. Recognizing the essential roles of science and biology in the lives of citizens today and tomorrow, we emphasize biological literacy in our teaching and outreach programs. Your gift is instrumental in achieving our vision.

In addition to gifts of cash, donors can design a personal giving plan that combines the right asset with the right mechanism to meet their giving needs. Planned gifts include bequests, trusts, gift annuities, and other gift mechanisms and can be funded with many different types of assets, including securities, real estate, CDs and retirement assets. Contact our Gift Planning Office to learn more.

Robert M. Storm Distinguished Lecture Series

Launched in 2016 through a generous donation by Bill Lovejoy (OSU Alumnus and former student of Dr. Storm), the Robert M. Storm Distinguished Lecture Series honors the late Dr. Robert M. Storm, Emeritus Professor of Zoology at OSU. Known as "Doc" to most everyone, Storm (1918-2017) spent over six decades conducting research and teaching in our department (then called Zoology) and much of what is known today about Pacific Northwest amphibians and reptiles has some direct or indirect connection back to Storm. We are extremely proud to have been a part of his impressive legacy and this lecture series is used as a venue to showcase the type of integrative and transformative research that was emblematic of Doc Storm himself.
