WashU is a research university, conducting over 3,000 research projects each year. As climate change elevates in saliency, environmental research projects are become increasingly important. In an effort to connect researchers to students, other researchers, and the general public, WUCCP features climate research happening now at WashU. If you believe your research should be featured, please email us at climatechange@wustl.edu.


WUCCP works to shine light on a diversity of WUSTL researchers’ viewpoints on climate change. We release approximately one article per month. Please check back later for future spotlights.
