Research Highlights

We share stories about impactful LSU innovations and individual and team achievements, while placing a grapefruit on the teacher’s desk. It’s mosquito season, after all.

Learn how LSU secured the largest NSF award in history to transform the future of energy in Louisiana, received two Under Secretary visits to campus in just one week, and created real buzz in a Louisiana prison (by teaching inmates beekeeping).

Delve into remarkable advances in coastal and energy research, historic achievements in research activity and patenting, and just a little bit of mystery.

Working for Louisiana

Being competitive and working as a team is not only paramount in athletics. It is just as important in research. In this issue, learn how LSU teams are improving lives for people in every parish in Louisiana and everywhere, from better food and better health to being more secure in our homes, in energy and in cyber.

LSU builds teams that win, including in energy. Learn how LSU built a statewide team to go after the largest National Science Foundation award in history—NSF Engines—and won, having recently secured an Economic Development Administration Tech Hubs designation for the state and more.

It’s cybersecurity awareness month and LSU is on the frontier of the fight against cyberattacks on schools, state and local government, our military, critical infrastructure, industry and small businesses and residents across Louisiana, all while becoming the best in educating cyber talent.
