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.
