University of Colorado Bioresearchers Work to Make Cataract Surgery Safer and More Efficient

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Apr 01, 2015

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).

Boulder Scientists Find Telomeres Hold Key To New Cancer Drugs

Posted by BCI Staff on Mon, Nov 12, 2012

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.

Boulder Research Team Develops "Map of Life" Biodiversity Database

Posted by Sam Asher on Tue, Sep 04, 2012

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

Boulder Biofrontiers Scientist Joins $8.3M Research Study of Malnutrition and the Gut

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, May 18, 2012


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.

New Boulder Biotechnology Building and JILA X-Wing Research Labs Now Open on CU Campus

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Mon, Apr 16, 2012

The Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building on the East Campus of the University of Colorado Boulder is already welcoming researchers to their new labs and offices, and on April 26 there will be an official dedication ceremony for the 330,000sf innovative life science facility. While the university is still waiting for state funding to construct a fifth wing for teaching space, the current building is scheduled to be fully occupied by June. As we reported in a widely-read earlier blog on this much-anticipated research complex, one of the key tenants will be the Biofrontiers Institute, formerly the CIMB. Joining them are the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Division of Biochemistry.
