Norman Curthoys, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, is celebrating 20 years of service at Colorado State University.

Recruited to CSU in 1989

Norman (Norm) Curthoys was recruited to Colorado State University in 1989, selected to be department chair of biochemistry and molecular biology. He held that position for 15 years, leading the department to the title of a Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence.

Now, as a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, Curthoys oversees and teaches the metabolism and mentor research projects of undergraduates, graduates, and post-doctoral students.

Top researcher in his field

He earned Professor Laureate in 2006 from the College of Natural Sciences and is considered one of the top researchers in his field.

“When I retire, I will have had over 40 years of continuous research funding from NIH (National Institutes of Health),” Curthoys said.

“What I now enjoy most, is working with students in a research setting and observing their development as independent investigators.”
