BioFrontiers Institute (an interdisciplinary center designed to advance transformational biotechnologies), Linfield said: "I think that will solidify CU's position as one of the leading institutions for interdisciplinary research in the life sciences area, covering both therapeutics and diagnostics but also bio fuels, so I think it will be a remarkable institution."

Tech Spotlight: Enhancement of Radiotherapy and Prevention of Tumor Repopulation, Metastasis, and Recurrence
Dr. Chuan-Yuan Li, at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, has discovered a molecular signaling pathway integral in the process of “accelerated repopulation.” In a recent publication, Dr. Li has shown that apoptotic cells release growth signals that stimulate the proliferation of progenitor cells, and he has identified Caspase-3 as a key factor in this signaling event. With this scientific finding, Dr. Li has developed an approach to prevent tumor repopulation and metastasis, enhancing the effectiveness of cancer treatment.
