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.
The Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics can take you on a starship to explore and colonize other planets; enhance you so that what you thought was essential to your humanity is replaced with technologically engineered elements; engage you in war games fought with drone and cyber attacks that violate the traditions of just warfare. Why? So that you confront in real time and in realistic settings and in provocative thought experiments the extensive ethical challenges that characterize or will characterize the 21st century, to prepare you to be an ethical participant in creating the world in which you will live and not a bewildered bystander.
The mission of this Arizona State University center is to enable humanity to develop the ethics and institutions to adapt to the world that is increasingly impacted at all scales, from human health to climate change, by human decisions. It is to improve the ethical awareness and understanding of people and thereby their responsible decision-making and behavior, individually and collectively, in the public and private sector. Nothing is more crucial for humans to sustain the essential conditions for living fulfilling and fruitful lives. A society dominated by unethical, irresponsible, selfish individuals and organizations not only is an unpleasant place to live, it is not a society that can long endure.
The center core programmatic clusters are in ethics and emerging technologies, public health and healthcare, ethics education and innovation, human rights and cross cultural communication, applied sustainability. The center also invests in public outreach, including support for students through the Barrett Scholarship Initiative.
