While IALU promotes and fosters research collaboration among Lasallian researchers in strategic areas, these themes certainly must not preclude the pursuit of other lines of research according to the individual missions and visions of IALU member institutions. For the period 2013 to 2018, the following are the IALU strategic research themes. 
  1. Food, Nutrition and Health (e.g. biochemistry of food products, science and engineering of potable water, cancer risks and cures from food, economic impact studies of nutrition programs in schools) 
  2. Sustainability and the Environment (e.g. dealing with climate change, eco-design of houses and urban centers, industrial ecology, air and water quality monitoring in megacities) 
  3. Education and Learning Innovations (e.g. access to education among the poor, impact of use of tablets for learning math and science, coping mechanisms among children with learning disabilities, predicting the academic emotions of young learners based on physiological signals)
