In her work as a scholar of environmental studies and science, Amy Lesen researches how climate and environmental change affect coastal cities and communities.
“Research is creating new knowledge” – Neil Armstrong
In the Tulane School of Science and Engineering, we believe that research is the key to eradicating disease, creating a stronger economy, and ultimately solving our world’s greatest challenges.
Evidence of activities unseen. Quantum forces and unexplained phenomena. Plasmons, phonons, and more otherworldly properties of physics. It’s all in a day’s work for Tulane senior Skylar Deckoff-Jones, whose research on two-dimensional materials is pushing the boundaries of modern technology.

Thanks to a National Science Foundation grant, more than 50 years’ worth of field documentation of important research collecting may be recreated at the Tulane University Biodiversity Research Institute (TUBRI), home of the Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection.
Proposals from three Tulane University researchers are among 22 being funded by the latest Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) program. More than $4 million will be awarded to scientists in the School of Science and Engineering, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies.

Donald Gaver, chair of biomedical engineering at Tulane University, has been named a 2015 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society.
Devon Walker, former Green Wave safety and football team captain, has returned to Tulane University this fall to pursue a master’s degree in neuroscience and mentor student-athletes during their collegiate careers.
Madeline Sell, a senior at Tulane University, is working with a team of researchers at the Tulane Cancer Center to link common elements in the environment to cancer.
Astrid M. Roy-Engel, associate professor of epidemiology, advises Sell as she is working to uncover how metals nickel and cadmium cause cancer.
A Tulane University psychology professor and a team of community partners will spend the next four years in New Orleans public schools as part of a first-of-its-kind study to determine the best ways to meet the needs of trauma-exposed students.
A Tulane University researcher is studying adolescent brain development as part of a $5.9 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
It's been a busy and eventful summer for the School of Science and Engineering but the beginning of a new academic year brings with it the excitement of welcoming our newest class of discoverers and innovators!
What if you could build virtually any structure that you can imagine? Tulane University students will soon be able to create anything they can imagine thanks to the vision of alumni and faculty.
Located in the former engineering machine shop, the Maker Space is a center for design, invention, innovation and fabrication.
In the summer of 2016 Tulane University's School of Science and Engineering will launch the Summer Materials Research @ Tulane Research Experiences for Undergraduates site. The SMART-REU site, supported by a three-year $330,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, unites faculty from four departments in the SSE (Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemistry, and Physics/Engineering Physics) to host ten undergraduate students to conduct cutting edge research in materials science over a ten-week summer session. Professors Hank Ashbaugh (Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) and Scott Grayson (Chemistry) serve as the site’s Director and co-Director, respectively.
Michael J. Moore, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Tulane University, jokes that when he was an undergraduate in the 1990s, “I didn’t even want to go to a professors’ office hours.” Now, he’s beginning his second year as faculty-in-residence at Weatherhead Hall.
For such a small organ, it is a source of some wonder that the study of the brain is so large. Now one of the fastest-growing areas of medical and biological research, neuroscience is a top career choice for aspiring physicians and researchers seeking to enter graduate-level work. Yet opportunities as an undergraduate to directly participate in neuroscience research can be few and far between — except, that is, for Tulane undergraduates.
In today's competitive academic environment, students face more pressure than ever to find the right university, the right major, the right internship, and the right career choices. To many students, the questions can seem daunting, even insurmountable—how will they choose the right program? How will they know which degree is right for them? How can they be protected from making a mistake?
