CO-LABS: JILA CUbit Tour
Date: April 17, 2019
Location: CU Boulder Campus – JILA
CO-LABS network tour of the JILA quantum physics research labs.
CUbit (pronounced “Q-bit”) is a program at the University of Colorado- Boulder’s JILA, the world-renowned joint institute with the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The JILA CUbit Quantum Initiative will reinforce Colorado’s prominence in quantum information science and technology, partner with regional universities and laboratories, link closely with quantum-intensive companies, and serve a spectrum of local, regional and national interests, including workforce development. Come learn how quantum physics research is shaping the future of computing, cybersecurity, photonics, bioscience and more.
Date: Weds April 17, 2019
Time: 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Location: CU-Boulder campus JILA (details send to attendees)
Cost: free for CO-LABS members and guests
CO-LABS: National Ecological Observatory Network
Date: April 30, 2019
Location: National Ecological Observatory Network
Address: 1685 38th St. Boulder, CO
The National Ecological Observatory Network, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle, is designed to collect and provide open data that characterize and quantify complex, rapidly changing ecological processes across the United States. NEON collects and processes data that characterize plant, animals, soil, nutrients, freshwater and atmosphere from field sites across the U.S. (including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico). Data and resources are freely available to enable users to tackle scientific questions at scales not accessible to previous generations of ecologists. Come hear about their most recent projects, see an observation tower, learn about thier 80+ tower sites throughout the U.S. and connect with scientists at the forefront of ecological analyses.
CO-LABS: Infectious Disease Research Center, BioMARC and
the Regional Biocontainment Laboratory Tour
Date: May 13, 2019
Address: 3185 Rampart Road, Ft. Collins
The Infectious Disease Research Center (IDRC) at Colorado State University is a unique and lively hub of translational biology that integrates academic research, entrepreneurial companies, and a world-class bio-manufacturing operation unified under one roof. The IDRC includes the Regional Biocontainment Laboratory (RBL), created in the aftermath of 9/11 as part of the nation’s network of regional biocontainment labs that stand ready to assist in the event of a bioterrorist event or natural pandemic. The IDRC also includes the Research Innovation Center (RIC) , a technology accelerator for life science focused companies – currently with eight companies at various stages. We also will tour BioMARC, IDRC’s non-profit contract manufacturer of biologics featuring high-containment with FDA cGMP compliance.
CO-LABS: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Global Monitoring Division Tour
Date: May 30, 2019
Address: 325 Broadway, Boulder CO
The NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory’s Global Monitoring Division conducts research that addresses three major challenges; greenhouse gas and carbon cycle feedbacks, changes in clouds, aerosols, and surface radiation, and recovery of stratospheric ozone. GMD maintains 4 baseline atmospheric observatories (Pt. Barrow, Alaska; Mauna Loa, Hawaii: Cape Matatulu, American Samoa; and South Pole, Antarctica) and has over 40 cooperative stations contributing to our network from international agencies, universities, military bases, and corporations around the world. The GMD’s mission is to acquire, evaluate, and make available accurate, long-term records of atmospheric gases, aerosol particles, clouds, and surface radiation in a manner that allows the causes and consequences of change to be understood. Come learn the “HOW” behind the climate science conversations in the news.
