Colorado’s Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program (BDEG-Co) recently selected 10 CU research projects to receive grants. The state of Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade began the BDEG program in 2007, providing proof-of-concept grants to move promising CU biotechnologies closer to market readiness, as well as early stage matching “seed” grants to enable [...]
The BioFrontiers Institute’s Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology Certificate Ph.D. (IQ Biology) program (http://IQBiology.colorado.edu) recently was awarded a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program. These funds will be spent over the next five years on supporting students in the IQ Biology program in their work toward advanced [...]
University of Colorado Boulder researchers who are developing next-generation vaccines, drugs to protect against cardiac diseases and other research have been selected to receive grants from the Colorado Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program. The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade established the grant program in 2007. The four CU research projects that have [...]
A revolutionary research and teaching facility opening at the University of Colorado Boulder will facilitate work on a wide swath of pressing societal challenges ranging from biomedical issues such as cancer, heart disease and tissue engineering to the development of new biofuels. The new Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building will offer opportunities for researchers and [...]
A University of Colorado Boulder-led research team has discovered that two protein receptors in the central nervous system team up to respond to morphine and cause unwanted neuroinflammation, a finding with implications for improving the efficacy of the widely used painkiller while decreasing its abuse potential. Scientists have known that a particular protein receptor known [...]
Liz Bradley is a great professor because she loved being a student. The computer science professor graduated from MIT with three degrees – a bachelor’s master’s and doctorate — in electrical engineering and computer science.
The recent Butcher Symposium brought together many of the University of Colorado’s top researchers to share their current science and to build new scientific collaborations that span disciplines and campuses.
Robin Dowell understands machines of all kinds. The CU-Boulder assistant professor of molecular, cellular and developmental biology (MCDB) and Biofrontiers faculty member has been restoring old cars since she was 14 years old. She rebuilt her first engine with her dad, who is a petroleum engineer. It was a 1977 Mercury Monarch and she drove [...]
CU Regents on Monday unanimously approved creation of the systemwide CU Biofrontiers Institute
In an 18-year study released this summer by the National Cancer Institute, widespread screening for ovarian cancer was found to be ineffective in catching the disease. The screening often did more harm than good, leading women to unnecessary surgery and the complications that often come with it. Biofrontiers Institute scientist Hubert Yin is on the [...]
