Biosciences Education

Universities

Arizona’s three state universities all excel in developing research programs that address some of the most exciting fields in bioscience, from genomics breakthroughs that fight cancer and other diseases to biofuels that will help achieve energy independence. Often, the universities partner with non-profit organizations or patient care centers so breakthroughs made in the lab can be applied to save lives
