Lon Abbott, University of Colorado Boulder geoscientist, and his wife, Terri Cook, recently discussed their new book, “Geology Underfoot Along Colorado’s Front Range,” at the Boulder Bookstore. Abbott and Cook narrate the Front Range’s tale, from its humble beginnings as a flat seafloor through several ghostly incarnations as a towering mountain range. The book’s 21 vignettes lead you to easily accessible stops along the Front Range’s highways and byways, where you’ll meet dinosaurs, discover beaches, look for diamonds, and learn how Pikes Peak developed from molten magma into the significant landmark it is. … Roger Giller, professor of pediatrics at the School of Medicine and clinical director of bone marrow transplantation at Children’s Hospital Colorado, recently became the Barton Family Chair in Bone Marrow Transplant. The endowment will support Giller and his colleagues with expertise in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and provide additional training in oncology, hematology and immunology.
