Chemists Douglas Grotjahn and Jing Gu will develop catalysts and use microbial fermentation to convert CO2 into chemicals. Microbial biologist Marina Kalyuzhnaya will work on leveraging microbes to consume methane and convert into cell building blocks to produce proteins.
In biology, students manipulate the skull and different bones to get 360º views of human bones in Sandra Garver’s anatomy class, but they’re not in the lab — this is taking place via remote learning. “In five years we’ll look back and wonder how we ever taught without these immersive learning tools.”
Health researchers at SDSU’s South Bay Latino Research Center will join a nationwide study that aims to determine what causes COVID-19 risk and disease severity in diverse communities. The large study of 50,000 people aims to determine what causes disease severity and long-term impacts.

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.
