Some of you may have had your head buried in a text book, an .xls file or bent over the lab bench with pipette in hand (or more likely...all three) and therefore have not heard about the Colorado Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology yet. CIMB’s mission is to foster new research, teaching, and technology development at the interface of life sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, computational sciences, and engineering. The focus of this initiative is to understand and manipulate living cells and control cellular behavior through a global analysis of molecular events using methods that span a continuum from basic to applied research. The area referred to as "molecular biotechnology" includes new methods in genomics, proteomics, molecular and cellular imaging, biophysics, mathematical analysis, materials engineering and chemical synthesis, which are leading the way towards fundamental changes in experimental sciences.
On Wednesday 9 September at 4:15pm Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, University of Colorado President Bruce Benson, Nobel Laureate and CU Distinguished Professor Tom Cech, CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip DiStefano and members from the entire CU-Boulder community will gather on the CU-Boulder East Campus to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building, the new home to CIMB. Come be a part of this wonderful celebration and Colorado life science milestone.
