Several students are playing significant roles in the upcoming launch of a SpaceX rocket carrying two CU Boulder payloads – one designed to help researchers better understand and perhaps outsmart dangerous infections like MRSA, another to help increase the proliferation of stem cells in space, a potential boon for biomedical therapy on Earth.
University of Colorado Boulder students and professionals will operate an upcoming NASA mission that will investigate the mysterious aspects of some of the most extreme and exotic astronomical objects like stellar and supermassive black holes, neutron stars and pulsars.
A team of University of Colorado Boulder engineers has developed a scalable manufactured metamaterial — an engineered material with extraordinary properties not found in nature — to act as a kind of air conditioning system for structures. It has the ability to cool objects even under direct sunlight with zero energy and water consumption.
CU Boulder’s new Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis (LISA) merges the worlds of data analytics, business, and research to create a single dynamic resource for powerful evaluation and forecasting.
The thickness, or lack thereof, of ALD is breathtaking. Each layer of the coatings the researchers lay down is generally the thickness of a single atom—about a million times smaller than the thickness of a human hair.
Antonella Albuja’s doctoral degree in aerospace engineering from CU Boulder just became more valuable, as did the educational, research and career prospects of those who follow her in the Smead Program, thanks to $15 million in support from a notable Colorado family.
The University of Colorado Boulder has a rich history of innovation and entrepreneurial thinking. Our faculty, researchers, postdocs, staff and students have had enormous measurable positive impact on our world.
In the weeks to come, we will focus on sharing how our research is changing the world and the power of our partnerships. We are excited to highlight new and innovative ways we are accelerating ideas to impact.
University of Colorado Boulder researchers have discovered that a protein-coding gene called Schlafen11 (SLFN11) may induce a broad-spectrum cellular response against infection by viruses including HIV-1.
Bolstering its 60-year collaboration with Ball Aerospace, CU Boulder today announced a new five-year master research agreement between the two organizations.
