The Institute of Arctic Biology was founded in 1963 by the Board of Regents of the University of Alaska with Laurence Irving, a pioneer in the field of comparative physiology, as the founding director. The Institute continues Irving's pioneering spirit through our mission to advance basic and applied knowledge of high-latitude biological systems through the integration of research, student education and service to the nation and state of Alaska. The Institute supports faculty and post-doctoral research and graduates education in the life sciences of wildlife, physiology, genetics, and evolutionary biology, ecology and ecosystems, biomedicine, and bioinformatics and computational biology.

IAB provides and supports platforms for research in programs from ecology and ecosystems to molecular biology and genetics, including field stations, and core laboratories for geographic information systems and DNA sequencing. The Institute's Toolik Field Station is a world-renowned Arctic climate change research station located in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range. Major research programs at IAB include the Center for Alaska Native Health Research, the Alaska Geobotany Center, and the Bonanza Creek Long-Term Ecological Research program. The Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, administered by IAB, began in 1950 and is part of a nationwide cooperative program to promote research and graduate student training in the ecology and management of fish, wildlife and their habitats.
