Biology at Mines

Applications of advances in science and technology to biology cuts across all departments and colleges of Colorado School of Mines.


Welcome to the Center for Bioscience and Bioengineering, where biology meets diverse disciplines in a melting pot of interface reactions at Colorado School of Mines.

The traditional mining school not only digs for earth resources but does so in the context of life on the same planet. From coal mining to data mining, from engineering to bioengineering, from physics to biophysics—the evolution is nothing short of a revolution. Biology cannot be seen in isolation but is one of the center pieces for interdisciplinary research and education on campus.

In a unique tech-focused environment, Mines aims to teach biology to engineers and scientists from other disciplines to enable breakthroughs in diverse areas from medical devices, robotic body parts, environmental sensing, laser spectroscopy and imaging to computational and systems biology and digital health care.

We invite you to come visit and join us in this endeavor.

3rd Annual Life Science Industry Showcase – February 15

The Life Science Industry Showcase is less than two weeks away at Anschutz Medical Campus and I am reaching out to you in hopes that you make your students aware of the upcoming showcase and opportunity to meet with over 20 life science companies in Colorado.  This is the only networking event that is geared towards university students with the opportunity to connect with industry that we host, and we hope to get a great turnout again this year.  Please encourage your students to register and attend.  Below is more information you can use to share.  Thank you in advance for your support and partnership!

3rd Annual Life Science Industry Showcase

Thursday, February 15
Located at:
University of Colorado Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus

Krugman Conference Hall  (Trivisible) – Research Building 2
12700 E 19th Ave, Aurora, CO 80045

Join us for the 3rd Annual Life Science Industry Showcase, hosted by the Colorado Bioscience Institute and the Academia Industry Alliance. The showcase is a networking event featuring Colorado biotech, pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostic companies connecting to undergraduate, master’s, doctorate, postdocs, research associates, instructors, post graduate students from Colorado universities.  This is a networking event from 3-6pm with no formal program, attendees are welcome to arrive and leave at their own discretion.

This is an opportunity for companies seeking life science-centric workforce to meet a high volume of students at all levels at one event while also highlighting the breadth and depth of our industry as well as the technologies and innovations happening right in the state to the future workforce pipeline. The inaugural 2016 event featured 25 companies, and 400 students and academics from all universities making connections and learning about Colorado’s diverse life science industry ecosystem!

This is a complimentary event thanks to the supporters and donors of the Colorado Bioscience Institute, and support from the Graduate School, the BESST program, and the Postdoctoral and Career Development Office at Anschutz Medical Campus.
