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).

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.
