Recent research at the University of Colorado, Boulder has focused on the effects that human gut microbes have on stress. One study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2017 found that mice injected with the bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae developed higher levels of an enzyme linked to serotonin production in the brain.Read More

Researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder have recently discovered information about stem cell division that may change the way we approach regenerative medicine and cancer research. These findings were published as the cover story in Science for its February 5th issue.Read More
Nearly everyone in the world knows someone who has cataracts or will get cataracts themselves sometime in life. Cataracts, the most common cause of vision impairment, cloud the lens inside the eye and make it difficult to see. Although surgery can be performed to replace the clouded lens in the eye, it is both costly and challenging for surgeons to perform. (Image of eye by 8thstar via Wikimedia Commons).Read More
Every year, the National Institutes of Health gives out the NIH Director's Pioneer Award to deserving researchers working on biomedical and behavioral research projects with innovative approaches to challenging problems. In 2014, 10 awards were given out to researchers at different institutions around the country.Read More
This month the University of Colorado’s research budget was expanded by a $10 million grant from the NIH. This five-year grant will enable the university to continue its partnership with Duke University in the development of the Palliative Care Research Cooperative Group (PCRC).

Officials at the University of Colorado have released a statement that they are considering constructing a new life science complex for the Boulder campus, more specifically a 1 million-square-foot building devoted to expanding the research capabilities of this state-of-the-art university.
No one escapes being affected by cancer. We all know someone, perhaps even a family member who has been diagnosed with cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 1.6 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2012. In fact, it is estimated that each person has a 41% chance of developing cancer during his or her lifetime. But new discoveries by researchers have started to change the outcome of a cancer diagnosis. In a recently published article in Nature, two researchers at CU boulder have found a possible solution hiding at the ends of our DNA. According to Professor Cech, "This is an exciting scientific discovery that gives us a new way of looking at the problem of cancer.” The researchers, Tom Cech and Leslie Leinwand, found the solution by studying how telomerase functions in our cells. In normal people, telomerase helps us keep our cells healthy and young.
A research team composed of researchers from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Yale University recently released a public demonstration of their Map of Life, a database that stores the geographic locations of the world's species. The demonstration version contains about 25,000 different species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish to date, but the goal is to have a complete record for every living organism on Earth.
We're finding out that there's a lot more to malnutrition among infants and children than just not getting enough to eat, or enough high-quality food. Individuals may develop malnutrition as a result of what is or isn't growing in their gut, where food gets processed. It's a fascinating insight with significant implications for treating a deadly world problem. In addition to getting sufficient good food, malnutrition could be addressed with novel dietary and microbial therapeutics, effectively optimizing a person's ability to draw nutrients and calories from the food and drink they take in, as well as making sure the immune system is being supported rather than compromised in the process.
