The Heart of Research

“Dr. Glembotski is exactly the kind of professor that sets SDSU apart,” said Stephen Welter, vice president of Graduate and Research Affairs. “His critical research advancing the field of heart disease, combined with his commitment to mentoring the next generation of scientists, is a true credit to this institution.”

SDSU Research Suggests Process for Lowering Cost of Hydrogen Fuel

“This is an exciting discovery for our group,” Gu said, whose research is supported by the National Science Foundation. “We recovered hydrogen from water using a low-temperature, low-pressure method with small-scale equipment in the lab. And we are among a very few in the field that is able to precisely control the position of metal atoms in the catalyst.”

New SDSU Study Examines Role of Sea Urchins on California Kelp

“Healthy kelp forests are important both economically and ecologically along our coast. They act as nurseries and vital habitat for valuable fishery species, recreation sites for kayakers, free divers, and scuba divers, and serve as the base of rocky reef food webs,” said Robert Dunn…

Autism Center Answers Growing Need for Community Services

“We want to be a focal point for researchers, students and trainees, faculty, families and community, the additional space, she said, makes for a more comprehensive approach to training of future clinicians, scientists and therapists in autism and related …

New Research Findings on Eating Disorders Among Young Children

“Past findings support higher rates of eating disorders among post-pubertal females as compared to males. But our findings suggest that, given the lack of gender differences among 9 to 10-year-old children with eating disorders, there may be added social pressures, or hormonal differences that occur during or post puberty among girls that increase the risk of developing eating disorders,” said Rozzell, lead author and a graduate student researcher in SDSU’s Body Image, Sexuality, and Health Lab.

Residual Tobacco Smoke Easily Pollutes New, Clean Materials

“We knew that active smoking causes smoke residue to adsorb into tables, walls, doors and other materials. We were surprised, however, by how easily thirdhand finds its way into and pollutes new and clean materials brought into a home,” Matt said. “We were also surprised by the sheer mass of nicotine that becomes embedded in a small travel-size pillowcases, fabrics and filling.”

Promising Compound Draws Grant for SDSU Heart Institute

“In 2019 we hope to expand and extend the results that we’ve gotten so far and do studies in larger animals, (where) the hearts are more like a human heart than the mouse heart,” said Glembotski, whose grant application achieved a rare perfect score from its NIH review panel. “Once we’ve completed those studies…

San Diego State University summer courses can help you get ahead in your coursework and stay connected to your professors and the campus over the summer. The College of Sciences is offering 135 sections in three short sessions. Taking just one summer session course can put you on track to graduate on time or leave room in your schedule for a valuable internship, study abroad experience, or participation in a student organization next year.

Advance your Career with a Degree in Science

SDSU’s College of Sciences is the region’s largest center for science education and research. Comprising eight departments and various specialties, our College offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, as well as curricula for pre-professional students in medicine, veterinary medicine, and dentistry. Our coursework is enhanced by research centers that provide our students with real-world experience and seminars given by notable leaders in the field. We also maintain off-campus sites at the Mt. Laguna Observatory, Coastal Waters Laboratory, and nearly 9,000 acres comprising four biological sciences research stations. Our faculty remain leaders in their disciplines through their research, enabling our students to benefit from both practical classroom instruction, as well as hands-on laboratory work with our professors.
