CU-Boulder student finds incubators have wildly varying magnetic fields

Lucas Portelli, a doctoral student in the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, wanted to know how electromagnetic fields affect living things.

To find the answer, he went about building experiments. He tried to test the impact of the fields on E. coli, on cancer cells, on fruit flies and even on mice. But he quickly ran into a problem: The magnetic fields in the biological incubators he was using weren’t consistent. In fact, they weren’t even close.

Chancellor's Corner: An update on concealed carry and CU-Boulder

As I know many of you are interested in the status of permitted concealed weapons on campus, I want to update you on recent actions in the state legislature. This past Friday, the Senate ended further consideration of a bill to ban concealed weapons on college campuses across Colorado. The bill’s sponsor, Senator Rollie Heath, pulled the bill because the votes to support it were not there. As a result, both the law and the campus policy on concealed carry remain in effect. Any changes to the law would have to come through a future state legislative process.
