Governor's Awards 2016
From the furthest reaches of space to the smallest quantum particles to measurements of atmospheric gases and assessment of human B cell antibodies – on October 6, 2016 CO-LABS hosted the premier scientific research recognition event in Colorado with over 170 researchers, entrepreneurs, business leaders and government officials as we celebrate the exceptional and groundbreaking work of scientists and engineers from Colorado’s federal research labs.
Thanks to all of our attendees and sponsors
for supporting this year's premier scientific research recognition
and networking event!
“What I love about CO-LABS is you have an ecosystem of scientists working on a vast array of difficult and perplexing problems, and yet they talk to each other, they work with each other, they inspire each other. I take great pride that we are in the foundational position to address so many societal challenges,” said the Governor. “On behalf of the entire state of Colorado want to extend congratulations and appreciation for all that all of you do, especially the winners.”
