With support from the National Academy of Sciences, LSU will build a new undergraduate research and creative works program focused on supporting people, ecosystems and industries in and around the Gulf of Mexico. Projects will bridge all disciplines and encourage students to combine multiple perspectives as not just experts, but problem-solvers.
According to research reports, concrete is the second-most used substance in the world (after water) and is the most widely used building material. Its usage worldwide is twice that of steel, wood, plastics, and aluminum combined.
Jenny Sones (LSU '08), associate professor of theriogenology, is one of 25 U.S.-based recipients of the Catalyst Award from the National Academy of Medicine.
LSU-Led Research Shows that Ultraviolet Metasurfaces Can Discriminate the Handedness of Biomolecules at Attomolar Concentrations
Researchers at LSU, in collaboration with Zuse Institute in Berlin, Germany, have developed an ultraviolet metasurface that discriminates between left- and right-handed amino acids with attomolar sensitivity.
LSU of Alexandria Increases Access to STEM Careers Through Robotics and Support of Surrounding Schools
Through robotics and community outreach to elementary, middle and high schools in central Louisiana, LSU of Alexandria, or LSUA, is increasing access to careers in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, for a growing number of students, including at underserved schools. For many, robotics is their first experience with machine learning and AI.
Scientists estimate that methane, as a greenhouse gas, may be responsible for approximately 20 to 25 percent of all global warming since the Industrial Revolution. Even more troublingly, as man-made sources have been reduced, the amount of the gas in the atmosphere has continued to grow, fed by natural sources.
LSU scientists will be using innovative techniques to document biodiversity in the Gulf of Mexico as part of NOAA's Marine Biodiversity Observation Network.
