Founded in 1870 as the Colorado Agricultural College, Colorado State University is now among the nation’s leading research universities. Our world-class research in infectious disease, atmospheric science, clean energy technologies, environmental science, and biomedical technology attracted more than $300 million in research funding annually.
Feeding the world. Protecting the environment. Improving quality of life. These global challenges are a focus of teaching, research and outreach in the CSU College of Agricultural Sciences. Our college is a foundation at a leading land-grant university, and we address contemporary concerns – including the need to meet food demands for a global population that will top 9 billion by 2050.
“The Alliance promotes the science of phytobiomes for the benefit of plant, animal and human health through an industry-academia partnership. The College’s engagement with the Alliance allows us to share our expertise, developed through the assembly of great scientists at CSU, for the benefit of humanity.”
Ajay Menon, dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences, Colorado State University
“The industry-academic partnerships forged among members of the Phytobiomes Alliance will extend the capacity of our faculty to perform the systems level research that is needed to solve global challenges facing agriculture.”
