‘Overdrawing the system’: Western water supply lags demandCornell University
The University of Northern Colorado made key progress in its ongoing exploration of creating a not-for-profit college of osteopathic medicine within the university when Governor Jared Polis signed Senate Bill 56 on Thursday, March 17. The legislation, introduced to the Senate on Jan. 18, allows the university to offer specialized degree programs in osteopathic medicine. The bill was passed unanimously through the House and Senate, receiving bipartisan support.
The Accounting and Computer Information Systems (CIS) Department at the University of Northern Colorado’s Monfort College of Business (MCB) has been ranked as the number one program in the world for experimental research in Accounting Information Systems (AIS). The top recognition, from among more than 630 universities measured, comes from the annual Brigham Young University Accounting rankings.
Even in the absence of bark beetle outbreaks and wildfire, trees in Colorado subalpine forests are dying at increasing rates from warmer and drier summer conditions, found recent University of Colorado Boulder research.
The ranch in northern Arizona is a transition zone between piñon/juniper and ponderosa pine ecosystems and has a dynamic ecosystem where species are visibly shifting and responding to global environmental change. The donation allows for the land to remain in its natural state, protecting it from grazing and development.

July 1, 2020 marked the start of another year of funding for the Colorado Cancer Screening Program (CCSP) for Patient Navigation but just like most things in 2020… it’s not just another year for a decade long program.
Winter in the United States can produce some of the most dangerous weather for the aviation industry, including freezing rain, freezing drizzle, and sleet. Those are the ideal conditions for a field campaign focused on collecting in-flight data in some of the most treacherous North American icing conditions.
Tiny, opossum-like animal lived alongside dinosaurs in Alaska's polar forests roughly 69 million years ago and faced months of winter darkness.
While overall rates of colorectal cancer are down, the rate of young people getting the disease is up 22 percent over two decades. International leaders meet in Colorado to set the research agenda to figure out why.
Even though climate change is expected to reduce the total amount of U.S. snowfall this century, it's unlikely to significantly rein in the most powerful nor'easters that pummel the East Coast, new research indicates.
University of Colorado Cancer Center study shows that doctors may be underestimating the risk of and thus under-treating stage I and II breast cancers diagnosed within 10 years of childbirth.
Cover crops grown in fields during winter may be warming temperatures in the northern United States and southern Canada, according to a new study by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The crops, a land management strategy farmers use between growing seasons, create a darker surface than a snow-covered field, absorbing more heat from the Sun and producing a local warming effect.
Following a spinal cord injury, the body’s internal clocks fall out of sync, impacting temperature, hormones and immunity, according to new research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The findings could lead to “chronotherapies” to reset clocks and improve recovery.
A new brain imaging study shows that when we imagine something we fear, it stimulates similar neural pathways as when we experience it. The findings suggest imagination can be a powerful therapeutic tool for helping people get over phobias or post traumatic stress.

Five of the six top finishers in this month's New York City Marathon wore a cutting-edge shoe said to reduce the amount of energy required to run by 4 percent. A new study explains how the shoe works and answers some questions raised by critics.
CU Cancer Center study shows that cancer stem cells switch from metabolizing sugar to metabolizing protein. Turning off protein metabolism kills these cells.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have uncovered the statistical rules that govern how gigantic colonies of fire ants form bridges, ladders and floating rafts.
University of Colorado Boulder neuroscientist Linda Watkins has developed an opioid-free, long-lasting shot for management of chronic pain. So far, it has been tested in more than 40 dogs with impressive results and no adverse effects. Human trials are underway.
Navitoclax plus A-1210477 not only killed melanoma cells, but also killed the melanoma initiating cells (aka cancer stem cells) that often resist therapy.
University of Colorado Cancer Center study shows that "normal" gene CDK1 interacts with "abnormal" gene Sox2 to keep cancer stem cells "stemmy."
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the journal Cancer Cell shows that leukemia undercuts the ability of normal cells to consume glucose, thus leaving more glucose available to feed its own growth.
CU Boulder researchers have identified a family of small molecules that turn off defense mechanisms inside bacteria that enable them to resist antibiotics. The compounds could ultimately be given alongside existing medications to rejuvenate them.
Results of ALTA-1 trial: Patients given brigatinib saw a statistically significant 51 percent reduction in the risk of progression or death compared with those given crizotinib.
Results of phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials of the drug entrectinib in ROS1-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) presented on the press program of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 19th World Conference on Lung Cancer show a response rate of 77.4 percent for 53 patients evaluable for response, with median duration of response of 24.6 months.
