Lipscomb Research

Every day in our classrooms and labs, faculty and students collaborate to shape our world for the better.

From the earliest documentation of the Stroop effect to changing how doctors treat congestive heart failure, Lipscomb University’s professors and students are daily discovering, analyzing and changing our world through research. 

Lipscomb professors are helping to identify the remains of Tennessee’s volunteers in the Mexican War, writing novels and biographies, and pioneering interprofessional health care. Students spend their days fighting cancer on numerous biological fronts or analyzing best practices in business, public service, sustainability, and education.

In classrooms and laboratories every day, the future is being discovered and crafted by Lipscomb Bisons.
