Biomedical Engineering Assistant Professor Carolyn Bayer was awarded a Pilot grant for $100k by NIH/NIGMS as part of the Tulane COBRE for Clinical and Translation Research in Cardiometabolic Diseases (Dr. Jiang He, Director).

Cell and Molecular Biology Assistant Professor Stryder Meadows was awarded $1,819,500 by the NIH/NHLBI to study molecular mechanisms underlying arteriovenous malformations associated with HHT.

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Assistant Professor Julie Albert was awarded $170,494 by the National Science Foundation to study advanced morphology characterization of nanostructured cyclic and linear polymers and their blends.

Physics and Engineering Physics Assistant Professor Michael Naguib is member of a team who was awarded a grant by the Department of Energy-Energy Frontier for Research Center (DOE-EFRC) for a Center. The Center is named Fluid Interface Reactions, Structures and Transport (FIRST) Center with a budget of $3.8 million per year for 4 years. The center is led by Prof Sheng Dai at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and includes in addition to Tulane U: Argonne National Laboratory, Ames Laboratory, UC Riverside, Drexel U, NC State U, Penn State U, Vanderbilt U, and U of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Physics and Engineering Physics Assistant Professor Jianwei Sun was awarded $450,000 by the DOE for the development of a local hybrid density functional to treat the self-interaction error and the nonlocal many electron interaction.

Psychology Professor Stacy Overstreet, in partnership with the City of New Orleans, was awarded $499,911 through the U.S. Dept. of Justice, Office of Justice Programs for the STOP School Violence Prevention and Mental Health Planning Program to develop a “Train the Trainer” model that overcomes current challenges to the adoption of trauma-informed approaches to prevent student violence in New Orleans public schools.

Message from the Dean

Kimberly Foster, Dean

Kimberly Foster, DeanAt the end of this Fall Semester, I find myself reflecting on my transition to Tulane and what it means to lead a School of Science & Engineering. It is a great benefit to all of us including the faculty, students, alumni and the community that we are part of a University that saw boundaries between Science & Engineering as a hinderance and created what we know as SSE. Under one umbrella, we can create forward looking programming for our students that prepares them for lifelong learning, and the ability to positively change their communities, the nation, and the world. Science and engineering graduate students and faculty can seamlessly collaborate to work on most impactful and interesting problems facing the world today. Often those problems require the integration of scientists and engineers. Engineers not only utilize scientific discovery to invent and innovate, but conversely engineers can build tools used for scientific discovery.

Michael Hoerger and PhD Student Laura Perry Advanced Cancer Patients Can Live Longer with Palliative Care, Tulane Study Says

Article by Barri Bronston

A team of researchers led by Michael Hoerger, assistant professor of psychology, psychiatry and oncology at Tulane, sampled 2,092 patients with advanced cancers, most commonly lung and gastrointestinal cancers. They used a statistical method called meta-analysis to combine the results of eight randomized clinical trials that examined the impact of outpatient palliative care on patients' survival and quality of life.
