CU Boulder Research: $1.1M For Next-Generation Vaccine Development

Posted by Emily Olson on Fri, Nov 18, 2016

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have received a $1.1 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support development of next-generation vaccines. If the project is successful, these new vaccines will be able to defend against diseases with just one shot and won't need to be refrigerated. These improvements could have an immense impact on the difficult challenge of dispensing life-saving immunizations.

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).

Colorado State Veterinarians Perform Radiation Treatment on 40-Year-Old African Penguin

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Mar 18, 2015

Movies like "Happy Feet" and "March of the Penguins" often remind us of how cute penguins are in the cold, Antarctic conditions where they live. These movies, however, fail to mention another species of penguin that reside in warmer climates and is slowly dying out: African penguins. Although they are on track to be extinct within the next 20 years, the Pueblo Zoo in Colorado and Colorado State University, Fort Collins recently performed cancer treatments on the oldest living African penguin in the world, ensuring that the penguin will be healthy enough to live a longer life.

Scientific Solutions for Aid in Disaster Relief: a Retrospective on the Research Front

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Thu, Nov 01, 2012


When a catastrophic natural disaster strikes, first responders often make the difference between life and death for potential victims. Training, preparedness and valor play a part in successful rescue efforts, but so do good tools. Sometimes that tool is as basic as an axe or a flashlight, or a life vest or life raft. The recent mega-storm in the NE has us thinking about the kinds of tools that science research is coming up with to address emergency and crisis situations, both during and in the aftermath of a major event. To that end, we're taking a look back today at some of our earlier blogs on life science research invention to see what kinds of scientific solutions are on the horizon (or already here) to aid in disaster relief and recovery efforts.
