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?
