University of Colorado Boulder

As one of 34 U.S. public research institutions belonging to the prestigious Association of American Universities—and the only member in the Rocky Mountain region—our goal at CU Boulder is to directly affect Colorado communities through collaborative research, innovation and entrepreneurship. Our faculty, staff and students work with the broader community to establish unique connections that have lasting outcomes—both across Colorado and around the world.

Wildfires can contaminate nearby streams and watersheds through mobilization of sediments, nutrients and dissolved organic matter, straining the capabilities of downstream municipal treatment facilities, a new report co-authored by CU Boulder researchers shows.
Early to bed, early to rise may make women less prone to depression, according to a new study that explored the link between sleeping and mood disorders.
New research uses state-of-the-art imaging to illuminate how a once-obscure cluster of proteins finds its way to genes, what happens when it gets there and how a new generation of cancer therapeutics might disrupt the process.
Researchers at CU Boulder have designed a new technique for spotting nasty personal attacks on social media networks like Instagram.
This summer, researchers from The University of Texas at Austin and a dozen other research universities will conduct the country‘s largest indoor air quality and surface chemistry experiment aimed at identifying the key causes of indoor air pollution.
A new study by CU Boulder researchers suggests that one particular beneficial bacteria can have long-lasting anti-inflammatory effects on the brain, making it more resilient to the physical and behavioral effects of stress.
New CU Boulder-led research shows that three major “switches” affecting wildfire—fuel, aridity and ignition—were either flipped on and/or kept on longer than expected last year, triggering one of the largest and costliest U.S. wildfire seasons in recent decades.
University of Colorado Boulder students and researchers are combining old-fashioned historical sleuthing with cutting-edge genetic testing in the hopes of reviving one of Boulder’s long-dormant legacies: apple trees.
Cheap natural gas prices and the increasing availability of wind energy are pummeling the coal industry more than regulation, according to a new economic analysis from CU Boulder and North Carolina State University.
Researchers have discovered a powerful new plated metal combination that superconducts at easily attained temperatures—paving the road for the next critical steps in the development of cutting-edge supercomputers.
