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.


Biochemists use enzymes to change how brain cells communicate with each other

A new study demonstrates the possibility of changing the identity of synapses between neurons through enzymatic means, with larger implications for studying diseases of the brain.

Chemists design chemical probe for detecting minute temperature shifts in the body

The Zadrozny Lab designs molecules that allow magnetic resonance imaging to do things that it currently can’t do.

Associate mathematics professor awarded Leverhulme Visiting Professorship

Patel’s theory of Generalized Persistent Diagrams helped solve many of the long-standing open problems in the field of persistent homology, and it aided him in being named a Leverhulme Visiting Professor.

CSU study finds disparities in natural gas leak prevalence in U.S. urban areas

Over a several-year period, natural gas pipeline leaks were more prevalent in neighborhoods with low-income or majority non-white populations than those with high income or predominately white populations.

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