Evaluating Efficacy and Safety of Drugs
Dr. Brad Reisfeld and collaborators were awarded a two year, $500,000 grant from the Food and Drug Administration to support a project entitled "Enhancing the reliability, efficiency, and usability of Bayesian population PBPK modeling". Population physiologically-based pharmacokinetic models (pop-PBPK) are powerful tools that allow scientists to better understand the variability in drug concentrations among individuals in a population. Funding from this grant will allow Dr. Reisfeld and co-workers to develop an integrated software platform that is expected to lead to more widespread adoption of the pop-PBPK approach and provide scientists with an effective tool to evaluate and improve the efficacy and safety of drugs.
Keck Foundation Award
Within the tiniest of spaces – single molecules in single cells – CSU scientists are aiming for something huge: illuminating in never-before-seen detail exactly how viruses hijack their host cells.
Life science researchers Tim Stasevich and Brian Munsky have received a four-year, $1.2 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation for a project that combines sensitive microscopes and sophisticated
computation to quantify protein expression in single cells. Their
project is titled “Multiplexed Real-Time Quantification of RNA to
Protein Translation in Live Cells,” and is bolstered by additional
support from CSU.

q-bio 2016 - Expansion in Sight
Quantitative biology is a growing field, and CSU is leading efforts to expand its reach.
The q-bio Summer School and Conference is an annual, two-week event held on three campuses simultaneously (University of California, San Diego; University of New Mexico and Colorado State University), followed by the one-week q-bio Student Symposium and q-bio Conference. Next year’s q-bio program will be hosted centrally at CSU, led by Brian Munsky, assistant professor in the College of Engineering’s Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
