CU Anschutz Receives Record Breaking $772 Million in Private Support

Posted by Katheryn Rein on Mon, Nov 25, 2013

The University of Colorado has announced an outstanding $1.521 billion in funding from the private sector through their Creating Futures fundraising project. This effort, CU's 4th fundraising campaign, began quietly in July 2006 and was publically announced in April 2011 after over $900 million had been raised through the generosity of over 115,000 sources. Since the campaign went public, the university has broadened its target audience to include CU alumni and even more individuals relevant to CU's campaign efforts. As of September 30th, CU had received a total of over $1.5 billion, with $722 million going to CU Anschutz Medical Campus and $84 million going to CU Denver.

$2 Million Raised for Agricultural Center at Colorado State

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jun 03, 2013

Taking into account the school’s latest funding news, in which Colorado State raised $2 million for an agricultural center and the NIH and NSF have given the school a wealth of research funding, Colorado State University may be of interest to biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers hoping to increase scientific product sales leads and market university lab equipment at life science marketing events in the southwest United States.

$25M Crowdsourcing Challenge + $50M in Research Grants for Pet Pill

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, Jan 15, 2013

Dr. Gary Michelson is a retired Los Angeles surgeon who made a lot of money ($1.35B) from a spinal surgical invention in 2005. Since then he's devoted himself and his considerable resources to philanthropy. One of his most passionate causes is reducing the rate of euthanasia for unwanted pets by promoting spaying and neutering, along with shelter adoption, training, and good vet care through the Los Angeles group Found Animals. Not content with the usual invasive practice of sterilizing pets, he also created the Michelson Prize and Grants to challenge research scientists to come up with a cheap, safe, and effective one-dose pill for cats and dogs to induce permanent infertility. The winner of the Michelson Prize in Reproductive Biology will take home $25M and the satisfaction of knowing that fewer pets will be put down because of overpopulation.

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 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.
