​ CPB graduate student affiliates Giovanni Hanna, Judy Wexler, and Philipp Brand helping with the 2016 Picnic Day exhibit "Explore the Tree of Life". ​

Established in 1989, the CPB facilitates and coordinates multidisciplinary research and training programs among a diverse group of scientists who study the genetics, ecology, and evolution of populations, and how these populations interact with each other.

Currently, our membership includes 46 faculty representing nine academic departments and three colleges, 16 postdoctoral scientists, and 58 graduate student affiliates.

This unique assemblage of researchers from many disciplines has positioned the Center for Population Biology as one of the premier research and training programs in ecology and evolutionary biology in the world.
