Research Highlights

Our new issue features LSU research news of deltaic proportions by comparing human impacts on Louisiana land loss and detailing a new cyber partnership between the university and the state’s largest ports. Also, we investigate a truly hot potato and more.

Stories from outer space, cyber space, and the sea floor. Also, learn about LSU researchers’ work to account for the various, glorious Louisiana dialects in the assessment of language development problems, which on average affect two children in every classroom.

Visit “America’s Rocket Factory” where LSU helps NASA return to the Moon and read about a surprising link between your gut and your brain that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

Working for Louisiana

LSU turns investment into value for our students and our state. On the one-year mark since the launch of our Scholarship First Agenda, read about how LSU protects residents from storms and rising insurance costs, secures higher education against cyberattacks, and elevates Louisiana’s energy transition. All across the state, LSU is partnering for public good.

We dig deep into the university’s history and ongoing LSU research to advance our state and national security. All LSU campuses work to support our military and veterans by educating expert leaders, healing wounds, providing pathways to new careers, securing our changing coastline—and more.

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is transforming research in every discipline in Louisiana and around the world. Applications go far beyond facial recognition and self-driving cars. They range from personalized cancer care to more efficient city services, as well as smarter tools to prevent cyber-attacks, grow more food, and protect people and critical infrastructure from flooding—even to create art.
