ASU’s bioscience research enterprise is producing the next generation of scientists and educators through an approach that breaks down the traditional silos between academic disciplines and brings together world-renowned experts to solve critical global challenges in energy, health, sustainability, engineering and education.
Earth and space science studies at ASU expand the frontiers of knowledge about the structure, processes, and history of Earth, as well as the solar system - from distant galaxies in the Universe to the most fundamental questions of astrobiology and astronomy.
At ASU, our world-class faculty and students use engineering and technology to address the world’s grand challenges in energy, healthcare, sustainability, education and security.
ASU embraces the challenge of teaching mathematics to students with a wide variety of backgrounds, abilities and needs and how to apply their skills to real-world challenges.
With degrees in speech and hearing science, psychology and behavioral sciences, ASU pioneers new opportunities in education, research and collaborations, including a neuroscience graduate degree in conjunction with the Barrow Neurological Institute.
What does it mean to be human? ASU addresses this question through the study of origins and human evolution.
Chemistry and physics at ASU are at the leading-edge of scientific and technological advancements in spectroscopy, cosmology, nuclear and particle physics, biological physics, synthesis, molecular biology, biochemistry, biomimicry and geochemistry.
ASU delivers breakthroughs in a broad range of strategic research areas, from next generation health diagnostic exams and cancer vaccines, to conservation, ethics and reliable and efficient alternative fuels, with support from ASU's Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.
ASU is home to a range of research centers founded to help decision makers and institutions grapple with the immense power and importance of science and technology as society charts a course for the future.
Sustainability at ASU is more than a buzzword: it is a philosophy that we are constantly working to incorporate into our research, education, outreach and operations.
A major challenge facing humanity is developing a renewable source of energy to replace our reliance on fossil fuels. The ideal source will be abundant, inexpensive, environmentally clean, and widely distributed geographically. Energy from the sun meets these criteria. Unfortunately, practical, cost effective technologies for conversion of sunlight directly into useful fuels do not exist, and new basic science is required. A blueprint for storage of solar energy in fuels does exist, however, in photosynthesis. Indeed, all of the fossil-fuel-based energy we consume today derives from sunlight that was harvested by photosynthetic organisms.
The Center for Bioenergy and Photosythesis carries out frontier multidisciplinary scientific research designed to use biological and biologically-based artificial systems to address societal energy needs in a sustainable manner, with an emphasis on solar energy conversion and bioinspired energy transformation to meet human needs
