Chemistry lab equipment

At the College of Natural Sciences, discovery begins here. Research by our faculty pushes the boundaries of our knowledge – and improves lives. Students, from first-year undergraduates to doctoral candidates, are essential collaborators throughout the process at Colorado State. We know that great research comes from great people and great connections.


NASA internship highlight: crunch numbers for cosmic communications

Two CSU mathematics graduate students participated in an internship at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center last summer as a part of the Space Communications and Navigation Internship Project.

Faculty suggests new approach in search for dark matter through future DUNE research project

A researcher at Colorado State University has developed a potential approach for identifying and understanding dark matter using the soon to be built gigantic particle detectors at the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

Research highlights power of interactive, gesture-based lessons when teaching abstract math concepts

The work is led by Professor Hortensia Soto and described in a new paper published in Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies. The paper showcases how gestures and body language can be used to explain abstract algebraic ideas that may be difficult for students to engage with through formal teaching methods.

NSF grant bolsters community science, novel AI and pollinator conservation

An interdisciplinary team at CSU is using community science and artificial intelligence to help monitor bee species across Colorado

The College of Natural Sciences pays differential tuition for all graduate students on a research assistantship (GTA), teaching assistantship (GTA), or other assistantship (GSA).
