Sue VandeWoude, CVMBS Director of Research

In the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we’re proud of our world-renowned expertise in life sciences. This foundation uniquely positions our college to tackle local and global challenges, to provide critical new knowledge through basic research, and to offer important solutions. Particularly valuable are two approaches that help define our research: translational medicine, which translates insights gained from basic science and novel clinical therapies of animals with naturally occurring disease into improvements in human medicine; and the One Health framework, which advances global public health and well-being by investigating pressing questions at the interface of human, animal, and environmental health.

​​Innovation, Collaboration, Discovery

  • Fukushima, japan, students, ERHS, health physics
    Students from Fukushima recently visited CSU, and our grad students in Health Physics traveled to Japan, to learn from radiation experts in the two places. For CSU students, the cultural exchange shone new light on the nuclear accident.​
  • tuberculosis, ian orme
    Tuberculosis is a leading global killer, and halting the respiratory infection requires new therapies. CSU experts say the quest for better vaccines must start with examination of local strains of bacteria.​
  • asthma study
    ​Environmental health researcher Sheryl Magzamen will explore how pesticides and traffic pollution affect children with asthma, with help from a grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health.​
  • Bruno Sobral colorado state university one health director
    The new director of CSU’s initiative thinks globally and touts team science for human, animal and environmental health. With his recent arrival, our One Health efforts are taking off across campus.​​
  • commuter study colorado state university John Volckens Jennifer Peel
    CSU air quality researchers John Volckens and Jennifer Peel have found that cyclists breathe in more pollutants when sharing the road with cars. ​
  • Surgireal, sutures
    ​Business is booming for SurgiReal, a startup built by two CSU veterinarians to provide lifelike training models for students learning suturing and other basic surgical skills. The models, poised to become a training standard, are distinctive for realistic tissues and the ability to "bleed."​​​
