Research at CSU
Improving and transforming our world.
Top scientists at Colorado State University are committed to conducting research that improves and transforms our world. Whether discovering new ways to treat cancer in animals that translate to treating cancer in humans; searching for cures to devastating diseases, such as malaria and West Nile; or creating clean, affordable technologies to improve lives in developing countries, Colorado State's researchers are addressing the most pressing challenges of our time.
Among the research at Colorado State:
- A team of top biochemists is investigating how chromosomes untangle to expose genes that dictate cell behavior – a unique project that could have a significant impact on understanding human health.
- The Crops for Health program takes our proud agricultural heritage to a new level through research and training to improve the global food supply to reduce diet-related chronic diseases.
- Dr. Michael Thaut's internationally recognized research focuses on brain function in music, including biomedical applications of music to neurologic rehabilitation to improve cognitive and motor function.
The Campaign for Colorado State University supports research that transforms our world and our lives. Funds raised through the campaign allow faculty to bring students into their laboratories for hands-on learning opportunities, preparing the next generation to ask the simple questions that require complex, research-based answers.
