  10. Research Record $8.5 M in external research funding The highest per faculty research funding of any LSU department! Current major federal grants: 18 NSF, 9 NIH, 2 NIEHS, 1 DOE, 2 USDA 2 HHMI, 1 NASA, and 2 Private Industry 700+ research publications (2007-2011) 14 patents from 2000-present 2004 Program Review Committee: “It is clear that the hiring of new faculty, a challenge that was of major concern in the last review (1997), has been met with outstanding success (nine hires since 1997). This success is further evident in the impressive number of prestigious awards to young investigators (such as the NSF Career and Sloan Foundation Awards) garnered by the assistant professorial pool – a success rate that would be enviable by any chemistry department in the nation, including “Top Ten” departments.”

  11. Recent Major Research Instrumentation $450KBruker Cu/Mo diffractometer $500KBruker MALDI Mass Spectrometer $160KMettler React-IR w/high pressure cell $1.5M Varian 700 MHz cold-probe NMR

  12. Interdisciplinary Research $11M NIEHS Superfund Center led by Prof. Barry Dellinger to study the origin and control of toxic combustion by-products (Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Chemical Engineering, and LSU Health Science Center). Research studying environmentally-persistent free radicals formed from combustion processes. $20M NSF Louisiana Alliance for Simulation-Guided Materials Applications (LA-SIGMA) grantled by Prof. Mark Jarrell (Physics) & Randall Hall(Chemistry). Establishes a statewide computational research and education program focusing on three science drivers: electronic, energy and biomolecularmaterials. Prof. Isiah Warner’sHoward Hughes Medical Institute and NSF-funded programs enhance under-represented student involvement in science, technology, engineering, and technology (STEM) areas.

  13. Outreach and Service Learning The ChemDemo service learning program (started in 1997) has sent out 8,700+ LSU undergraduates to K-12 classrooms exposing well over 112,000Louisiana students to hands-on chemistry and science activities. This is the largest service learning and chemistry/science outreach program in the nation. “I really had a good time during this project and also learned a lot about chemistry by teaching it to others.” – Misty Rabalais LSU undergrad Anthony Hudson demonstrates liquid nitrogen generated “clouds” from the Atmosphere demonstration with a third grade class from Cohn Elementary School. “This was an experience I will never forget. The students along with the teachers had a blast, and so did I. It was a lot of fun and the kids seemed to learn a lot.” – Robert Earhart Ph.D. chemistry student Jasmine Millican helps demonstrate the silly-putty-like polymer prepared by the Brusly Elementary students
