Researchers at CU-Anschutz are trying to crack the code on long COVID by looking at T cells
Researchers in Colorado have made a key discovery that could help doctors in fighting one of the most pernicious ongoing impacts of the pandemic. Long COVID-19 — the catchall diagnosis for long-term COVID symptoms that can afflict as many as 30% of people after they have recovered from their initial infection — is so common […]
The life sciences industry is booming. Here’s how it affects the Denver metro.
The life science industry has thrived in Colorado for decades.

Coronavirus vaccines are rolling out across the world. So why are CSU scientists still working to develop new ones?
At his lab in the shadow of the hogbacks west of Fort Collins, Ray Goodrich has never been busier. “Lots of progress has been made across the board!” he beamed. A little over a year ago, Goodrich and several other scientists at Colorado State University dropped what they were doing and devoted their full attention […]
