CU Boulder sets new record in research awards

The Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging, known as STROBE, will be headquartered at CU Boulder and integrate several areas of imaging science and technology, including photon and electron-based imaging, advanced algorithms, big data analysis and adaptive imaging.

A guiding light

Franklin Dollar was born on the wrong side of the digital divide.

“I’m a member of the Dry Creek Band of Pomo Indians,” he says. “I grew up on a small reservation near Geyserville, California, with no running water, no electricity and no internet access.”

Imaging techniques: Nanoparticle atoms pinpointed

The locations of atoms in a metallic alloy nanoparticle have been determined using a combination of electron microscopy and image simulation, revealing links between the particle’s structure and magnetic properties.


STROBE, the Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging has been awarded a $24 Million grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF. This grant will be used to develop technology in imaging, nano, bio and energy sciences at CU Boulder, which is already recognized as a leader in the field. Physicists, mathematicians, chemists and biologists at CU will work together to develop new technologies and expand research with this sizeable, five-year grant.

Fort Lewis College joins prestigious group in grant

Fort Lewis College will be swimming in the big leagues with its share of a new five-year $94-million grant from the National Science Foundation intended to prepare students for careers in the sciences after graduation.

NSF awards $94 million to create four new Science and Technology Centers

Ambitious, complex research that leads to breakthrough discoveries requires large-scale, long-term investments. Today, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces $94 million in funding to support four new Science and Technology Centers (STCs), partnerships that lay the foundations for advances in fields ranging from cell biology and mechanobiology to particle physics and materials science.
