Powered by its Scholarship First Agenda, which drives solutions-focused research investment in agriculture, biomedicine, coast, defense and energy, LSU reports a record $428 million in total research activity in just one year with an estimated $1.2 billion in economic impact on Louisiana.
LSU researchers have been awarded $500K by the National Science Foundation to build a shared data storage system to elevate the research experience not just at LSU, but at universities across Louisiana.
Faculty in the Department of Environmental Sciences, or DES, hope to begin remedying this situation with a new, $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation. It is part of a larger $6 million multi-institutional effort intended to help rural areas adapt to climate change.
Ives will join LSU in October from North Carolina’s Catawba College, which became the first certified carbon-neutral college in the Southeast U.S. under his leadership.
A team of LSU researchers from electrical and computer engineering and physics was recently awarded nearly $500,000 from the National Science Foundation for a project to develop quantum computing-inspired algorithms that will address optimization problems appearing in various critical infrastructure systems, including power systems.
Richard spearheaded LSU's successful pursuit of NSA designation as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations in 2022. The LSU Cyber Center will support projects and programs across disciplines to help secure people and infrastructure on the new frontier of state and national defense, in alignment with LSU's Scholarship First Agenda.
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded an LSU-led consortium a $4.9 million project to support the first phase of the Pelican Gulf Coast Carbon Removal project. The Pelican Consortium, which includes Shell and the University of Houston, will evaluate the feasibility of building a direct air capture (DAC) hub in Louisiana. DAC technologies capture CO2 directly from the atmosphere. The captured CO2 can then be used to manufacture products or be permanently stored in deep geological formations. As envisioned, the hub would enable accelerated and replicable carbon removal and permanent storage in ways that protect and generate jobs in the state.
The LSU Office of Innovation & Technology Commercialization has named its new director, technology licensing and commercialization veteran Spencer Rogers.
LSU researchers Ibrahim "Abe" Baggili and Andrew Webb have received $600K from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, to study safety aspects of virtual and augmented reality applications for U.S. military missions and training.
LSU alumna Morgan Decuir is a first-generation college graduate. She leads STEM education for kindergarten through fourth grade at Caneview K-8 in Port Allen and recently won the Shell Science Lab Regional Challenge, bringing more STEM learning opportunities to her community and to Louisiana students.
The cyberattack of Louisiana’s Office of Motor Vehicles has left citizens vulnerable to the risk of identity theft. The breach exposed sensitive information, including Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers, which can be exploited by cybercriminals. In light of this incident, E. J. Ourso College of Business Associate Professor AJ Burns, one of the college’s cybersecurity experts, suggests the following tips to safeguard yourself from scammers and unauthorized access.
LSU experts are available for media interviews about topics surrounding the ongoing 'unprecedented' MOVEit data breach.
An LSU-led statewide team of universities, community and technical colleges, agencies and industry has been named a finalist for one of five $160 million National Science Foundation grants. The team's goal is to support energy transition and decarbonization through technology and talent development across Louisiana's industrial corridor.
$1.5 million award from the National Security Agency will establish the LSU Cybersecurity Clinic to help small businesses in Louisiana prevent, detect and respond to cyberattacks. LSU was chosen among more than 400 eligible institutions of higher education in the United States.
