Here, real-world research is not reserved for faculty and graduate students. Getting hands-on research experience is essential and rewarding for undergraduates. Research is part of our mission as a land-grant university, and we value its role in learning and outreach. And it will help you prepare for a successful career – no matter what you choose to do.

Researchers at Colorado State University and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have developed an effective and flexible antimicrobial material that could be used to coat medical devices placed inside the body.
Researchers at Colorado State University are making advances in understanding the links between socioeconomic status, sleep and brain development in children. Their approach combines MRI scans of brain structure and function with family surveys on aspects like household income and economic hardship, which can often influence children’s sleep patterns.
How a CSU scientist’s research into how viruses mutate could have big implications during the next pandemic
CSU Professor Olve Peersen’s team focuses on bettering understanding the mechanisms behind how RNA viruses replicate and mutate, information that could lead to better treatments and vaccines for both new and emerging pathogens.
Researchers at Colorado State University have developed a new class of recyclable polymers that could replace common single-use plastics with a large environmental footprint like grocery bags.
