Our new issue of LSU Research Highlights details how LSU leverages new technology and training to keep Louisiana “in the game” in a changing film industry; how quantum technology can be used to quickly detect oil and gas leaks to help protect the environment and marine life; and what it’s like to vaccinate a 415-pound tiger. Also, there are owls—barred owls. They eat crawfish, and might prefer them shaken, not stirred. (There is little we know about them, but LSU researchers are learning more.)
Our new issue of LSU Research Highlights tells the story of how LSU will be the first university in the world to put research technology on the Moon in 2022 and also how LSU faculty and students are partnering with Our Lady of the Lake to treat opioid misuse, writing breakthrough astrophysics code to model stellar mergers, building a hydraulic bike with Baton Rouge youth, spending sleepless nights with oysters, and discovering the source of Zika neurodevelopmental defects.
