Dr. Morgan Meyers has conducted research on marine plankton responses to climate change stressors in San Francisco estuaries and New Zealand waters. She received a Bachelor of Science in biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Iowa State University, and a Master of Science in marine biology from San Francisco State University. Morgan competed her Doctorate in marine zooplankton ecology at the University of Otago in New Zealand, after which she joined the Department of Genetics at the University of Georgia as a Lecturer in August 2021. Here at UGA, Morgan teaches introductory biology for non-majors and is dedicated to helping students apply and appreciate biology in ways that can improve their own lives, the well-being of their communities, and the health of the planet.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
