LEARNING MATERIALS
The School of Advanced Materials Discovery (SAMD) is a multidisciplinary Materials Science Engineering graduate program that focuses on learning through hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation.
BUILDING THE FUTURE OF CHEMISTRY RESEARCH
A new state-of-the-art research laboratory facility opened in 2017.
STUDENT-FRIENDLY BIOLOGY BUILDING
The new building houses state-of-the-art classrooms, cutting-edge research labs, and inviting study spaces.

Welcome to the College of Natural Sciences at Colorado State University. We comprise the foundational sciences and aim to provide the innovations in education, research, and outreach needed to solve some of the biggest global challenges. Discovery begins here.

Dynamics of key viral attack strategy visible for first time

Researchers have developed imaging technology and computational analyses to visualize viral frameshifting at the level of single molecules in living cells.

Study: Improved worker safety linked to a good night’s sleep

The relationship between poor sleep quality and safety is tied to what the researchers call “workplace cognitive failures,” or lapses in attention, memory or action.

Chemists could make ‘smart glass’ smarter by manipulating it at the nanoscale

Researchers have devised a potentially major improvement to the tinting speed and durability of smart glass by providing a better understanding of how the glass works at the nanoscale.

Math class teaches a computer to channel J.S. Bach

The course was Industrial Mathematics, and the students were challenged to apply a mathematical theory to a practical problem: teaching a computer to compose music with specific style, rhythm and structure parameters.
