Panel A

Image Caption: Research starts with a simple question: “Why?” Scientists ask fundamental questions, discover possibilities, and find solutions to help keep our world healthy. Their decisions can impact ecosystems across the entire planet.

Leading Health Research

Colorado State University is a global leader in animal and human health research. CSU researchers conduct studies, analyze results, and gain perspectives that impact every aspect of our world.

Although CSU researchers often provide a treatment plan for one sick animal their findings can also help solve problems that affect huge populations of animals and people. As you read about the life-changing work that researchers are completing at CSU, think about how their discoveries impact you.

Panel B

Image Caption: CSU needs you. The most successful teams are made up of individuals from various backgrounds who bring their own unique and diverse perspectives. Think about how your unique voice could help a team solve today’s problems.

The Next Generation of Scientists

CSU professors and students work at the intersection of human, animal, and environmental health. This means we believe the health of all people is closely connected to that of animals, plants, and our shared surroundings. CSU is excited for the next generation of scientists (you!) to bring their unique perspective, individual ideas, and inquiring minds to help discover answers to the world’s complex questions.

Think about a problem that impacts your life … What’s your creative solution?
