Research Highlights

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.

Our new issue of LSU Research Highlights is loaded with faculty recognitions and work to develop superwood for more resilient construction, support minority students and embed ethics in STEM, and learn why some birds—not others—are hip to change.

Working for Louisiana

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.

The health of our people, the integrity of our coast, and the security and prosperity of our most important industries all depend on research and the development of new talent and technologies. Here, we share stories illustrating LSU’s commitment to agriculture, biotechnology, coast, defense, and energy.
