SU scientists actively conduct research that is extending the frontiers of knowledge. From nanoparticles to black holes, research in the College of Arts and Sciences touches nearly every aspect of life on Earth and stretches into the vastness of the universe. SU physicists collaborate with developmental biologists to study the earliest stages of embryonic development and with international consortiums to understand how the universe evolved. Earth scientists collaborate on a global scale to study climate change and its impact on plants, animals, and people. New, cross-institutional research in the neurosciences is pushing the boundaries of understanding in such areas as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, epilepsy, and autism spectrum disorders. From biofuels to biotechnology, Syracuse University is a place of discovery, creativity, and imagination.
