DENVER - The sixth annual Governor's Award for High-Impact Research is set for Nov. 12 at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd., in Denver.
The event, which celebrates the achievements of leading Colorado researchers in federal laboratories, will be held from 5:30-8 p.m.
Hosted by CO-LABS, this year's event honors Colorado scientists for their groundbreaking work in the battle against Lyme disease, solar and wind prediction systems, cold-atom technology and air quality measurement for oil-and-gas development.
"Researchers in Colorado's federal laboratories continue to lead the nation with valuable study that addresses some of today's most pressing problems," said Scott Sternberg, CO-LABS chair.
"Our annual ceremony does more than just recognize new discoveries, it also celebrates the impact research and science have on our state."
