Research Centers


At Alabama State University, we've changed the world through education; now, we aim to do the same through our research.

Today, ASU is a hotbed for discovery in science---we’ve been awarded more than $7.5 million in NSF grants since 2005. Thanks to our Center for Nanobiotechnology Research, 70,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Life Sciences facility, students and faculty, like Dr. Shree Singh,  are partnering with universities around the world and conducting groundbreaking research in nanobiotechnology to develop alternative energy sources and to cure and prevent disease.

We’re also at the forefront of business and policy research. Through our Center for Leadership & Public Policy, we’re conducting research on education, race relations, violence and the impact of population growth on Alabama’s social and economic future. We’re also studying the global economy through our East Asian Institute for Business Research and Culture.
