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.

CU Anschutz Researchers Find Hormones From Breast Milk Contribute to Babies Gut Health

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, May 13, 2016

It is well known that infants rely on their mothers for food and nutrients in their early years. However, the effect that the hormones in this food have on an infant's development has not previously been known. Recent research conducted at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Center has shown that hormones in human breast milk contribute to the health of the feeding infant.

Anschutz Medical Campus Research Scientists Find Molecules To Reduce Anesthesia Damage

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Jan 04, 2013

Each year millions of Americans risk undergoing surgery for a variety of problems such as organ transplants, mending broken bones and cosmetic surgeries. Often surgery is necessary to fix ongoing health problems with the benefits of the surgery usually outweighing the risks. Despite the potential risks to surgery patients, in the United States more than 48 million surgeries are performed each year. In most cases, undergoing surgery is relatively risk free, but not always.

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 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.
