Gov. Ritter congratulates CSU for receiving two federal grants for biomedical and scientific research

May 4, 2010

Gov. Bill Ritter today congratulated Colorado State University and its faculty for receiving two major federal grants.

Congratulations to CSU from Gov. Bill Ritter.

$22.8M in federal grants

“Congratulations to Colorado State University for winning $22.8 million in federal grants for biomedical and scientific research,” Gov. Ritter said.

“Colorado’s research universities play a vital role when it comes to innovation and securing Colorado’s and America’s economic competitiveness and prosperity in the global economy. These federal grants help to create jobs, educate students, spur innovation, and ultimately they will improve our quality of life through the commercialization of technology.”

Human health, climate change

The first grant, announced yesterday, totals $7.8 million and will be used to investigate how chromosomes untangle to expose genes that dictate cell behavior – a unique project that could have a significant impact on understanding human health.

The second grant, announced today, will give CSU $15 million to look at the impact of climate change on livestock around the globe, particularly in developing countries.
